Abstract

Verruciform xanthoma is a rare benign skin or mucosal lesion characterized by verrucous epithelial proliferation accompanied by a prominent replacement of the dermal papillae with foamy histiocytes. The majority of the cases occur on the oral mucosa, but other sites, particularly the genital region, may be involved. Genital verruciform xanthoma can simulate other benign or malignant skin conditions. We describe a 68-year-old man who presented yellow to skin-colored verrucous nodule on the scrotum of which histopathologic findings showed characteristics of verruciform xanthoma.
