Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis is fairly uncommon, but an important clinical entity with significant patient morbidity. Early diagnosis is important to allow for conservative management and to avoid aggressive surgical resection. We present a case of an invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the glans penis, which was treated with topical anti-fungals and corticosteroids for 2 years prior to diagnosis, necessitating partial glansectomy.
