Abstract: This case describes a 13-year-old boy with persistent 2-cm pink penile plaque, which developed 4 months after surgical correction of phimosis. Postoperative wound care included Vaseline and betamethasone/gentamicin cream for 1 month. Biopsy was consistent with paraffin granuloma.Paraffinoma, also known as oleoma or lipogranuloma, consists of a granulomatous foreign‐body reaction to different oily external substances, especially those containing straight‐chain, saturated hydrocarbons in any part of the body. It appears as a consequence of the lack of necessary enzymes to metabolize the exogenous interstitial oil in the human body.
