Bowenoid papulosis of the penis: successful management with neodymium:YAG laser.J Urol. 1988 Jun; 139(6):1307-9.JU
Bowenoid papulosis of the penis is a recently described entity that clinically resembles benign verruca-like papular lesions but, histologically, it is identical to carcinoma in situ, Bowen's disease or erythroplasia of Queyrat. Although a few cases of spontaneous regression of bowenoid papulosis in men have been reported, conservative therapy, consisting of topical 5-fluorouracil, electrodissection or excision, is recommended. With these treatment modalities recurrences are not uncommon. We report 2 cases of extensive bowenoid papulosis of the penis treated successfully without scarring with the neodymium-yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser.
