An 86-year-old, married male patient presented to his dermatologist with several grouped verrucous plaques on his glans penis of unknown duration [Figure 1]. Lesions were associated with pruritis and a localized “burning” sensation. There was no prior history of condyloma acuminata. The patient was immunocompetent, and denied repetitive trauma, toxin exposure, or known sexually transmitted infections in the past. No other skin lesions were present elsewhere, including the oropharynx, plantar feet, and perianal skin. A shave biopsy was performed of a representative lesion on the glans penis [Figure 2],[Figure 3],[Figure 4].

The squamous proliferation most likely represents:
- Condyloma accuminatum
- Erythroplasia of Queyrat
- Verrucous carcinoma
