Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EDV) may clinically vary from pityriasis versicolor-like macules to wart-like flat papules, psoriasiform red papules, or pigmented keratotic lesions resembling seborrheic keratosis. Sun-exposed areas are commonly affected with genital areas rarely involved. It is associated with more than 30 human papillomaviruses (HPVs). In 90% cases of squamous cell carcinomas, HPV5 and HPV8 is isolated. A case of EDV with plane warts involving the genital area in a 35-year-old male is reported here.
