Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis (EV) is known as an uncommon inherited disease which has high genetic susceptibility to specific types of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. The clinical presentation of multiple hypopigmented scaly macules and papules may be mistaken for or difficult to distinguish from pityriasis versicolor. In this case report, we described an acquired EV associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who presented with expanded pityriasis versicolor-like hypopigmented scaly macules and papules all over the body. The histological and dermoscopic examinations were compatible with EV.
