Extramammary Paget’s disease is an uncommon intraepithelial adenocarcinoma in genital and perianal regions. Genital wart is the most common sexually transmitted disease caused by human papilloma viruses and vulval lichen sclerosus is chronic pruritic dermatitis in genital area which could be able to change to invasive squamous cell carcinoma. We report a patient who had simultaneous lichen sclerosus, genital wart and extramammary Paget’s disease of the vulva. We could not find any significant association between them in literature.
