LSC is not commonly seen on the penis, it's rather common on the scrotum

PKMB sounds good!  I've not heard of it. I also considered the possibility of an epidermal naevus in addition to the other suggestions above.

Thank you for all of the thoughtful and insightful comments. The patient also had patches on his scrotum and has a background of lichen sclerosus (BXO). We noted the presence of this unusual verrucous lesion, which did not look like typical VV, and the clinician was concerned about malignancy. Our biggest concern was differentiated PeIN but it was agreed that atypia typical of that lesion was not present here. HPV was negative. Certainly PKMB is part of the differential histologically, although the typical micaceous scale described with that entity was not present in this case.
