Verrucous hemangioma (VH) is a hyperkeratotic lesion usually presenting in infancy, occurring primarily on the extremities. We report a 5-year-old boy with VH in the glans penis and discuss briefly the hyperkeratotic vascular stains, which constitute a heterogenous group. During a 7-year follow-up, the patient received various local treatments, but the lesion regrew to its original size after each treatment until the second deep excision after which no more recurrences have been observed for 3 years now. VH in this location has never been reported.
