Abstract

Text-Size + 

  • Warty carcinoma variant of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis is a rare condition, making up 7% to 10% of all penile carcinomas. We present a case of warty carcinoma variant of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis in a 43-year-old Caucasian. The tumor presented in a locally invasive manner, requiring a total penectomy. The primary lesion measured over 15 cm x 16 cm, covering the entire perineum. The clinical features, diagnosis, surgical treatment and pathology are reviewed. In light of the locally invasive nature of warty carcinoma of the penis and high recurrence rate, early diagnosis and aggressive treatment is necessary for this type of unique penile cancer.
