A case of fibroepithelial polyp of the penis in a 59-year-old man is presented. The physical examination showed that the lesion affected the ventral surface of the glans, near the urethral meatus. No communication was found with the urethra. The patient had a history of long-term condom catheter use. He was successfully treated by wide local excision. The histopathologic diagnosis was a fibroepithelial polyp. Postoperatively, the follow-up examinations at 3, 6, 12, and 24 months showed normal findings and no recurrence. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc.
