We report a case of a locally advanced verrucous scrotal cancer in a patient with hypospadias. Surgical excision was performed and no recurrence was noted with 14 months of follow-up. To our knowledge, this association has not been reported. Historically, scrotal carcinoma is occupation related, but none of the occupational predisposing factors was identified in this patient. This observation suggests that hypospadias and secondary chronic inflammation of the scrotal skin, caused by prolonged contact with urine, may contribute to an increased risk of verrucous carcinoma. © 2003, Elsevier Science Inc.
