A 23-year-old man without a history of ever having participated in sexual intercourse and with an otherwise unremarkable past history presented with a painless blister on glans penis following masturbation on the same morning. There was no history of prior drug intake or trauma or physical manipulation. Examination revealed a 2 × 2 cm, round, tense hemorrhagic bulla on the left side of glans penis. The perilesional skin was slightly erythematous and showed variegated, whitish discoloration. Preputial skin was adherent to the edge of glans penis multifocally [Figure 1]. The differential diagnosis considered for the hemorrhagic bulla included fixed drug eruption, erythema multiforme, herpes genitalis and immunobullous disorders (cicatricial pemphigoid, bullous pemphigoid). Biopsy revealed acanthosis, basal layer degeneration, necrotic keratinocytes and upper dermal edema with moderately dense lymphocytic infiltrate, leading to a diagnosis of penile lichen planus. A direct immunofluorescence was performed and did not show any immunoreactivity. Bulla was aspirated and lichen planus improved mildly with topical tacrolimus 0.1% ointment.
