Question 13#

Which of the following penile dermatosis is NOT associated with penile cancer?

a. Lichen sclerosus (LS)
b. Bowenoid papulosis
c. Paget’s disease
d. Buschke–Löwenstein (Giant condyloma)
e. Condyloma acuminatum

Correct Answer is E


Answer E

Condyloma acuminatum is a predominantly a sexually transmitted infection caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and spread through oral, anal and genital sexual contact and is therefore a benign condition. All of the other genital dermatoses are associated with penile SCC. Lichen sclerosus and Bowenoid papulosis are sporadically associated with penile SCC, whereas, Paget’s disease and Buschke–Löwenstein are precancerous lesions and up to 30% transform into invasive SCC.
