OBJECTIVE
To report two cases of verrucous carcinoma of the penis, a rare tumor with a characteristic course and specific treatment that accounts for approximately 1% of tumors in the male.

METHODS
Two patients, aged 86 and 51 years, with verrucous carcinoma of the penis are described. Treatment was by partial penectomy and resection of the glans penis, respectively. The anatomopathological characteristics and prognostic aspects are reviewed.

RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS
Verrucous carcinoma of the penis usually presents as an exophytic lesion in the glans penis or prepuce and should be distinguished from epidermoid carcinoma which carries a worse prognosis and requires a different therapeutic approach.

The differential diagnosis is based on the biopsy findings. Verrucous carcinoma of the penis carries a good prognosis and can be managed by conservative surgery (partial penectomy).
