A 20-year-old man with no significant medical history presented with an 8-year history of multiple papules on the glans of his circumcised penis and had been diagnosed as condyloma acuminata.
Clinical examination showed multiple 1–2 mm, smooth, dome-shaped, skin-colored papules in a single or double row along the corona of the glans penis. No ulcers or inguinal lymphadenopathy was noted. Dermoscopy demonstrated whitish pink tiny papules in a few rows with central dotted vessels [Figure - 1]. A diagnosis of pearly penile papules was made. We explained the benign nature of these lesions to the patient and no treatment was required.
