The objective of this study was to determine common tumor types that occur on the canine scrotum in relation to other cutaneous locations and to identify potential risk factors for specific scrotal tumor development. A retrospective study was conducted and the database of pathology reports from the Surgical Pathology Service of the Department of Pathology and Toxicology, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania from 1986 to 2010 was searched for canine neoplastic scrotal and non-scrotal cutaneous lesions...

Buschke-Lowenstein tumour (BLT) is a giant condyloma acumina, which is rare entity and represents only 1% of all populace. It is a rare viral disease, essentially transmitted by sexual intercourse, characterized by a potential for malignant transformation, invasion and recurrence after treatment. We report a case of BLT associated with perinea-scrotal melanoma. This association was never described in the literature. The purpose of our case report is to discuss the clinical and pathological appearances of these two entities and to outline the recent studies of molecular biology, which can explain this association...

Punch instrument is a circular blade that can be used for many diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in different medical and surgical specialties. Punch surgery (or biopsy) is achieved by using this versatile punch blade under local anesthesia. Basic punch surgery is quick and easy to learn. Complications such as bleeding and infection are minimal. Diagnostic punch surgery can obtain a part of or whole skin lesion for histologic examination. In addition to the skin, nail and mucous membrane tissue can be obtained by punch biopsy...

PURPOSE: Genitourinary melanoma is rare and classically associated with a poor prognosis. We describe our experience with 10 patients with penile or urethral involvement. In addition, we present what is to our knowledge the largest reported series of melanoma of the scrotum (6 cases). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the records of 16 men who presented consecutively to our institution with genitourinary melanoma between 1962 and 2000. Clinical and pathological characteristics were assessed, including Breslow thickness, primary surgical intervention and clinical course...

OBJECTIVE: To probe the relationship of clinicopathologic presentations and prognosis of Paget's disease primarily involving the scrotum. METHODS: 11 cases of scrotal Paget's disease were studied retrospectively from 1984 to 1997. PAS was stained and EMA, S-100, HMB45, CEA and CA15-3 were immunostained in all cases for the differential diagnosis from Bowen's disease and malignant melanoma. RESULTS: Six of 11 cases involved hair follicle and/or sweat glands, and 3 cases involved dermis (one had metastasis of left superficial and deep inguinal lymph nodes, and left internal iliac lymph nodes)...
