A 50-year-old man presented with slow-growing dry, rough, micaceous scaly plaque over glans penis, which was compatible with clinical diagnosis of pseudoepitheliomatous keratotic and micaceous balanitis (PKMB) and histologically suggestive of PKMB without cellular atypia. He was treated successfully with topical 5-fluorouracil with complete clearance of lesion in 3 weeks without recurrence for 10 months. PKMB is an extremely rare and interesting condition; only a handful cases have been reported in world literature.
