Seo and Lee: Synchronous Verrucous Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Penis by Different Human Papillomavirus Infections


Synchronous verrucous carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the penis is a rare condition. We report on a case of penile carcinoma with a well demarcated and ulcerated endophytic squamous carcinoma lesion by human papillomavirus 16 and 61 types, and a whitish exophytic verrucous carcinoma lesion by an unknown lower risk human papillomavirus type.
