Abstract

Introduction

Masses of the penis are uncommon, especially in the pediatric population, and they need to be promptly assessed and biopsied. We present what we believe to be the first case of rapidly recurring case of glans and foreskin verrucous epithelial hyperplasia, a premalignant lesion. The young patient, a 13-year-old uncircumcised teenager, presented an itching lesion growing over four months and rapidly recurring after resection.
