Kissing nevus is a very rare congenital melanocytic nevus. Here, we describe one case of kissing nevus on the penis. A 15-year boy presented with asymptomatic black to dark brown color patches on his penis. Histopathological findings showed that there were nests and cords of nevus cells in upper dermis. No significant cytologic atypia and mitoses were noted. Immunohistochemical stains revealed a partial positive for HMB-45 only in upper dermis and a stronger positivity for S-100 in almost all nevus cells. We diagnosed the lesion as kissing nevus of penis. The patient and his parents refused further treatment, and the patient is being followed in our clinic.
