Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare cutaneous, intraepithelial adenocarcinoma usually found in the apocrine gland bearing areas. It is traditionally treated with surgery but has a high rate of recurrence. Of late, topical imiquimod 5% cream has come into use as another treatment option. We present two cases of EMPD in Asian skin treated successfully with topical imiquimod 5% cream.
