The case of a 70-year-old white man with a 10-year history of penile lichen sclerosus (LS) who developed microinvasive squamous cell carcinoma on LS is described. A high incidence of penile cancer arising on genital LS has recently been observed. The authors stress the importance of an adequate diagnosis and long-term follow-up in patients with penile LS because of the malignant potential of the disease.
