We reviewed 13 cases of verrucous carcinoma, accounting for 5 per cent of the penile cancers seen during a 25-year interval. Although the typical verrucous pattern predominated minute foci of invasive squamous carcinoma were identified in 3 patients. All patients were followed for at least 6 years and none died of the malignancy. Wide surgical excision, usually requiring partial or total penectomy, is the treatment of choice.
