Verrucous lesions of the penis are rare and difficult to classify. Superficial biopsy in any of the verrucous lesions shows only hyperkeratosis, acanthosis, and papillomatosis. Therefore, an adequate biopsy is a must to show the rete pegs that extend into the deeper tissues. Deeper biopsies are always required for an accurate diagnosis. These nonneoplastic lesions of the penis need to be differentiated from cancer which is associated with high morbidity. We report a case of a verrucous lesion of the penis in a 38-year-old male.
