There is limited information about the ecology of freshwater flatworms in China, in particular, the members of the genus Macrostomum. Surveying freshwater bodies to explore the species diversity is the first step to obtain more ecological information about those flatworms. We hereby report the discovery of two new species of freshwater flatworms in Macrostomum. Macrostomum chongqingensis Lin and Wang, n. sp. was discovered from stones in the shallow water of Jialing River bed near Chongqing. Macrostomum zhaoqingensis Lin and Wang, n...

This is the first part of the revision of the Alycaeidae of China, Laos and Vietnam. Here we revise the species hitherto classified in Chamalycaeus Möllendorff, 1897 (genera Dicharax and Metalycaeus in this study). We show that no Chamalycaeus live in the region, and the alycaeid species of the investigated region can be classified into five genera: Alycaeus Baird, 1850, Dicharax Kobelt & Möllendorff, 1900, Dioryx Benson, 1859, Metalycaeus Pilsbry, 1900 and Pincerna Preston, 1907. We propose Dioryx dautzenbergi Páll-Gergely nom...

Two new species of Macrostomum (Platyhelminthes: Macrostomorpha), M. shiyanensis n. sp. and M. lankouensis n. sp. are described from Shiyan Reservoir and Lankou Town. Morphological characteristics of the penis stylets and sperm, as well as the phylogenetic analysis using concatenated sequences of 18S and 28S rDNA genes support the establishment of these two new species and indicate that they are closely related to M. sinensis and M. heyuanensis described from different regions of Guangdong province. Finally, the progress of molecular phylogenetics of Macrostomum worldwide is also discussed...

Erectile dysfunction (ED), the most commonly reported sexual problem for men, reduces the quality of life for both patients and their partners. Even when physiologically effective, long-term adherence to ED treatments is poor. We review here the implication of having patients' partners involved in ED treatment, starting with treatment selection. We suggest that having partners engaged from the outset may promote an erotic association of the treatment with the partner, i.e., conceptually linking the aid to the sexual pleasure that the partner provides...

Testicular cancer is the most common solid malignancy affecting males between the ages of 15 and 35. The symptomatology caused by this tumor varies according to the site of metastasis. We present the case of a 26-year-old male who arrived to the emergency department with hematemesis. He had no previous medical history. On arrival, we noted enlargement of the left scrotal sac. There was also a mass in the left scrotum which provoked displacement of the penis and right testis. The serum alpha-fetoprotein level was 17,090 ng/mL, lactate dehydrogenase was 1480 U/L, and human chorionic gonadotropin was 287...

Sarcomas of the penis account for less than 5% of all tumors of the penis. They are dominated by Kaposi's sarcoma that mainly affects HIV-positive patients. However, recent studies have shown a relationship between Kaposi's sarcoma and HHV-8 infection (Human herpes virus-8), which explains why this sarcoma occurs in non-immunocompromised and HIV-seronegative patients. We here report the case of a 72-year old patient, with no previous medical history, reporting of gradual onset of tumor-like granulation tissue of 3 years duration at the level of the gland, without secondary location...

The incidence of cavernous metastases after radical treatment for bladder tumor is exceptional and is approximately 1%. The mean time between surgery and the occurrence of metastases is 8 months. In some cases they occur after 10 years. Diagnosis is confirmed by biopsy, which shows their urothelial origin. Here we report the case of 56-year old patient, with a history of smoking, having undergone total cystoprostatectomy in January 2017, who presented 2 months later with induratio penis plastica with no other sign associated...

Background: Primary penile sarcoma is a rare disease that affects men of all ages. Different subtypes of primary penile sarcoma exist, with the rarest being pleomorphic sarcoma. Delays in presentation and diagnosis of primary penile sarcoma have been reported because of its benign-appearing presenting features and rarity. If penile sarcoma is left untreated, the clinical consequence is metastasis that is fatal in most cases. Case Report: We report an extremely rare case of undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of the penis in a 59-year-old patient who initially presented with a slow-growing penile nodule...

Pressure ulcers develop in patients who endure long periods of immobilization, often caused by conditions such as musculoskeletal and neurological diseases. Pressure ulcers adversely affect the patient and increase caregiver burden and healthcare costs. Typical sites for these ulcers include the sacrum, trochanters, and heels; they also occur on the nape of the neck, penis, nostrils, helix of the ear, and upper back. Compression stockings are commonly used to prevent and stop the progression of venous disorders, including deep vein thrombosis, but their role in the development of pressure ulcers is not well known...

PURPOSE: Non-palpable isolated septal plaques of the penis are likely present in a significant number of patients affected by erectile dysfunction (ED) and penile pain without deformity or curvature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ultrasound (US) patterns observed in patients investigated for ED or penile pain without curvature. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 386 patients who underwent an initial colour-Doppler ultrasonography (CDU) of the penis for DE and/or penile pain without curvature...

A 67-year-old man presented to the hospital with subacute loss of vision in his left eye. The visual changes began 2 weeks earlier, with a central area of visual loss that had since progressed to near complete vision loss in the left eye. Physical examination revealed patchy alopecia, a scaling and hyperkeratotic rash of his hands and feet, and blanching, erythematous plaques with associated scaling on the scrotum and glans penis. Ophthalmologic examination revealed 1/200 vision in his left eye with a large plaque occupying a substantial portion of the superior quadrant, smaller perifoveal plaques in both of his eyes, and a small infiltrate above the left optic nerve head...

It was more recently announced by archeological society that cave art about human being dated back to 8,000 years ago had been discovered at southern Asia Minor. The primitive human figures involved the phallus pointing the ground almost the same size with legs. The cave artists represented their masterpiece without any exaggeration with the exception of extraordinary phallus. The erected penis is regarded as the symbol of giver of life and linked with the creator of the Universe in the initial period of art...

Objective: In the normal human penis, the glans wings are in apposition in the midline ventrally, and are separated by the "septum glandis" and "frenulum" of the prepuce. However, most of the hypospadias repair techniques include dissection of the glans wings and their approximation enclosing the neourethra within the glans. Material and methods: In order to obtain detailed information about the normal anatomy of glans penis, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of the penis were studied in three adults...

Constructions of masculinity have shifted and changed but the central role of the penis has remained firm. Yet, despite the implications for sexual health, there has been very little research on discourses around penises. The messages men receive about their manhood is apparent in articles in men's magazines. We conducted a discursive analysis of the ways in which penises were discussed in four market leading UK titles: Loaded, Men's Health, GQ and Attitude. Two broad discourses were identified, termed Laddish and Medicalised, both of which create fear-ridden spaces where men are bombarded with unachievable masculine ideals and traumatic examples of mutilated members...

Neglected side effects after radical prostatectomy have been previously reported. In this context, the prevalence of penile morphometric alterations has never been assessed in robot-assisted radical prostatectomy series. We aimed to assess prevalence of and predictors of penile morphometric alterations (i.e. penile shortening or penile morphometric deformation) at long-term follow-up in patients submitted to either robot-assisted (robot-assisted radical prostatectomy) or open radical prostatectomy. Sexually active patients after either robot-assisted radical prostatectomy or open radical prostatectomy prospectively completed a 28-item questionnaire, with sensitive issues regarding sexual function, namely orgasmic functioning, climacturia and changes in morphometric characteristics of the penis...
