Accounting for approximately 0.4-0.6% of all inguinal hernias, Amyand's hernia is a rare condition in which a vermiform appendix is found in an inguinal hernia sac. It is most commonly found in males and in the pediatric population. Since Claudius Amyand's first reported case in 1736, there have only been a total of 228 documented cases of the Amyand's hernia. Due to its rarity, the pathophysiology and risk factors of the condition are still unclear. Some theorize that it is secondary to a patent processus vaginalis or perhaps the presence of a fibrous band between the hernia sac and testes...

Warty (follicular) dyskeratoma (WD) is a discrete nodular lesion that demonstrates the characteristic histopathologic findings of acantholysis and dyskeratosis. WDs most commonly occur on the head and neck of adults. We present a case of WD that occurred on the mons pubis of a 53-year-old woman. Only a few other cases of WDs occurring on the vulva have been reported. WD most likely represents a tumor of the follicular infundibulum. Despite its name, there is no evidence that WD is caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection...

The buried penis, also called hidden or concealed penis, is associated with morbid obesity or seen after massive weight loss in adults. In highly obese, bariatric patients, the penile shaft invaginates into the pre-pubic fat masses, resulting in voiding problems and urine wetting of the surrounding tissue. This leads to infection, skin maceration, lichen sclerosus and eczema. Sole circumcision without mons pubis plasty or penile fixation does not suffice to alleviate the discomfort and leads to recurrence. In post-bariatric patients, penile retraction is only partially present or absent, but abundant pre-pubic skin tissue forms an apron covering the genitals with problems in hygiene and sexual intercourse...

INTRODUCTION: Hidden penis, inconspicuous and concealed penis are synonyms for the same entity "buried penis" where the penile shaft is hidden below the surface of the prepubic fat to an extent that gives an impression of a short penis, despite corporeal length being normal. AIM: The aim of our work is the reduction in the amount of the suprapubic fat by liposuction to reveal the buried penis and assess the results, patient satisfaction and possible complications...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the application of MEDPOR surgical implant in modified penile elongation. METHODS: The suspensory ligaments were divided, and cavernous bodies of crus were partially mobilized, so as to release part of the cavernous bodies from inferior ramus of pubis. Then, the penis was elongated sufficiently. MEDPOR surgical implants (MEDPOR; high-density porous polyethylene, Howmedica Osteonics Corp. Newnan, Ga) were inserted between the cavernous bodies and pubic symphysis...

BACKGROUND: A concealed penis is a condition where part of the penis is invisible below the surface of the prepubic skin. Dermolipectomy can correct this condition, although it involves a long abdominal crease incision, or infrapubic incision around the base of the penis, and a possibility for genital lymphedema. This study describes Shaeer's technique, a minimally invasive method for revealing the concealed penis. METHODS: A 1- to 2-cm-long incision was cut over the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) on either side...

Pubogenital tinea or tinea genitalis represents a rare type of dermatophytosis which, however, is increasingly being diagnosed. The mons pubis is affected, but also the outer regions to the penis shaft and the labia together with the groins. Pubogenital tinea is a more superficial erythrosquamous type, but strong inflammatory dermatomycoses of the genital area as tinea genitalis profunda ranging to kerion celsi are observed. A total of 30 patients (14-63 years of age, 11 men and 19 women) with pubogenital tinea are described...

Cutaneous infections with Trichophyton species of Arthroderma (A.) benhamiae are increasingly being detected in Germany. This dermatophyte typically causes tinea corporis, tinea faciei or tinea capitis with in part heavy clinical manifestation like kerion celsi. In special cases diagnosis and therapy can be difficult. In this article, four clinical cases are presented, whereby attention is given to special clinical situations and therapeutic aspects with regard to Trichophyton species of A. benhamiae: Case 1: Kerion celsi by in a 6-year-old boy; Case 2: Deep trichophytia at the mons pubis in a 32-year-old man working in a pet shop and his 27-year-old female partner; Case 3: Tinea manuum in a 7-year-old girl; Case 4: Tinea corporis in an 8‑year-old girl...

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms of fibroblastic origin that mainly arise from the pleura. Although SFTs arising at numerous extrapleural locations have been reported, extrapleural soft tissue SFTs are extremely rare. The diagnosis of SFTs is based on histologic findings. However, given the histological variability of SFTs, immunohistochemical examination becomes important in their diagnosis. Complete surgical resection is the only and a very important prognostic factor and is recommended for the treatment of both benign and malignant SFTs with a curative intent...

OBJECTIVE: Ablative surgery for vulvar cancer can involve the resection of perineum, vagina, urethra, groins, mons pubis, and abdominal wall creating complex defects. In our opinion, ALT flap is an ideal flap for reconstruction, because of low incidence of complications, long pedicle outside the radiotherapy field, capability of carrying fascia and muscle, possibility of sensate reconstruction, and low donor site morbidity. The purpose of this report is to describe our experience with ALT flap for reconstruction after vulvar cancer extirpative surgery, discussing our indications for complex defects and focusing on its versatility...

BACKGROUND: Vascular malformations are congenital abnormalities that do not spontaneously regress and may require surgical resection for treatment. CASE: A healthy 23-year-old woman presented with a painless, slowly enlarging mass of the mons pubis. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a cystic mass with minimal Doppler flow. The final pathology showed a combined lymphatic-venous vascular malformation. A meshed advancement flap was used to close the skin after surgical resection...

The female vulva is an intricate structure comprising several components. Each structure has been described separately, but the interplay among them and physiologic significance remain controversial. The structures extend inferiorly from the pubic arch and include the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, vestibule, and clitoris. The clitoris is widely accepted as the most critical anatomic structure to female sexual arousal and orgasm. The female sexual response cycle is also very complex, requiring emotional and mental stimulation in addition to end organ stimulation...

INTRODUCTION: The main objective of gender reassignment surgery (GRS) in male to female (MtF) transgender people is to create a functional and aesthetic vagino-clitoral complex. Here we report on a modified preparation of the neurovascular bundle (NVB). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between May 2011 and September 2014, 96 consecutive MtF transgender patients underwent GRS at our department. Sensitivity of the neoclitoris was assessed afterwards. Results were compared with a historical cohort from our department (2004-2010, n = 119) in which perioperative treatment was the same except for the preparation of the NVB...

Carcinoma of the cervix is the second to fourth most common malignancy in women. It metastasizes most often to the lungs, bones, and liver. Skin involvement originating from cervical cancer is rare, even in the terminal stages of the disease. Cutaneous metastasis of cervical cancer usually presents as cutaneous nodules, papules/plaques, maculopapular rash, and diffuse inflammatory rash. We report a rare case (only the second reported case to the best of our knowledge) of a 50-year-old woman with cutaneous metastasis in form of fungating ulcerative growth on mons pubis as presenting feature of carcinoma cervix...
