The principal objectives of effective practice in male genital dermatology are the accurate diagnosis and definitive management of non-sexually acquired genital diseases, in order to mitigate male sexual dysfunction (dyspareunia) and the risk of penile cancer.  The important dermatoses affecting the penis are psoriasis, Zoon’s balanitis, lichen planus, lichen sclerosus (LSc), penile carcinoma in situ/penile intraepithelial neolplasia (PeIN) and squamous carcinoma of the penis.  This lecture will focus on LSc and PeIN.  Male genital LSc is due to chronic, intermittent occluded exposure of a susceptible epithelium to urine.  PeIN and penile cancer are due to LSc and human papilloma virus infection.  The differential diagnosis of LSc and PeIN will be discussed.
