Epidermolytic acanthoma (EA), histologically characterised by the presence of “epidermolytic hyperkeratosis” (EH), is a rare acquired, benign cutaneous disorder. Usually it occurs as a solitary papillamatous lesion in early adulthood. The exact aetiology is not known. Few cases have been reported in the literature, we report a case of EA with unusual presentation over the male external genitalia.
