Abstract

Ulcerative lesions of the penis have many possible etiologies, including infectious, neoplastic, traumatic, drug-induced, and autoimmune. Although the most frequent neoplasm presenting as an ulcerative penile lesion is squamous cell carcinoma, it may rarely be a manifestation of other malignancies, including those of hematolymphoid origin. We report a case of ulcerative balanoposthitis as a manifestation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia and other hematolymphoid malignancies should be considered in the large differential diagnosis of nonhealing penile ulcers. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc.
