Kissing nevus is a rare clinical variation of the congenital melanocytic nevi located on adjacent sites of the body at which division occurs during embryogenesis. Kissing nevus is a curious type of nevus that was first described on the eyelids in 1908. These lesions are very rare on the penis; including this case, only 20 patients have been reported to date in the literature. We present one new case of kissing nevus of the penis along with histopathological findings.
