Many premalignant and malignant lesions affect the genitalia of elderly men. These include conditions like erythroplasia of Queyret, giant condyloma acuminata, verrucous carcinoma, invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which are relatively common. We report a case of a 65-year-old male with pseudoepitheliomatous keratotic and micaceous balanitis which is a rare penile condition affecting the elderly. It is considered as a distinct clinical entity by some, while others consider it as a condition that overlaps with verrucous carcinoma. It can also be considered a premalignant condition, as progression to invasive SCC has been noted.
