Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma is a recently described entity of unknown origin that presents as indolently growing papules and plaques over sun-exposed skin. Histology shows a granulomatous infiltrate with loss of elastin in the center of the lesion. We came across a patient who had penile lesions and a paucity of literature about the involvement of the external genitalia in this disorder.
