Urologists often encounter penile dermatoses stemming from varied etiologies. Although lesion biopsy and referral to a dermatologist is always a viable option, urologists can deliver excellent patient care when aware of the current knowledge of common penile lesions and recommended treatments. This article describes common dermatoses of the male genitalia and their treatment, including fungal, bacterial, viral, parasitic, cutaneous, environmental/iatrogenic, drug-induced, specific balanitides, and neoplastic sources.
