Abstract

We present a case of primary tuberculosis of the inner lining of the prepuce in a 63-year-old man. The condition resembled carcinoma. The diagnosis was based on histopathology and on M. tuberculosis culture. Successful treatment was by a combined medical and surgical approach. The rarity of the case is emphasized.
