Acrochordons are flesh-colored pedunculated lesions which occur in areas of skin folds. Although they are common in other sites of the body, herein we describe a case of acrochordon at an unusual site over the tip of glans penis which is a rarity. We report this case for its rarity, as there have been no similar reports and paucity of literature after extensive research according to our knowledge. Clinical presentation and pathological findings are presented and discussed.
