Penile verrucous lesion: not necessarily a genital wart

WY Leung 梁偉耀 and KK Jong 莊國坤

A 46-year-old Chinese man presented with one year history of itchy verrucous lesions over penis and scrotum. Skin biopsy confirmed epidermolytic acanthoma. Epidermolytic acanthoma is a rare benign tumour. Before making such a diagnosis, exclusion of other diseases, especially genital warts and bowenoid papulosis is necessary. Treatment of multiple epidermolytic acanthoma remains unsatisfactory.
