Erythroplasia of Queyrat is a squamous-cell carcinoma of the glans penis (head of the penis) or inner prepuce (foreskin) in males,[1][2]:733[3]:656[4] and the vulvae in females.[5] It mainly occurs in uncircumcised males,[5][6] over the age of 40.[7] Erythroplasia of Queyrat may also occur on the anal mucosa or the oral mucosa.[7]

Some sources state that this condition is synonymous with Bowen's disease,[5] however generally speaking Bowen's disease refers to carcinoma in situ of any location on the skin such as the lower leg. Like Bowen's disease, erythroplasia of Queyrat is associated with human papillomavirus 16 and is a precursor for invasive squamous-cell carcinoma.

It is named for French dermatologist Louis Queyrat (1856–1933),[8][9][10] who was head of the dermatology service of l'Hôpital Ricord, a venereal hospital in Paris, now Hôpital Cochin.[11]
