Abstract

We report a case of a 44 year-old man with porokeratosis of Mibelli, who presented with a 10 year history of a 1 cm diameter, well-circumscribed, erythematous, scaly patch with an elevated border on his glans penis. Histologic examination revealed a typical cornoid lamella and absence of an underlying granular layer. The localized type of porokeratosis of Mibelli is most commonly found on the limbs: however, the face, lips, mucosal surfaces, or genital area may instead be involved. We report a case of porokeratosis of Mibelli confined to the glans penis, a very rare site.
