BACKGROUND: Urinary diversion specimens from patients who undergo radical cystectomy are often submitted for urine cytology to screen for recurrent urothelial carcinoma. The objective of the current study was to investigate the frequency and cytohistologic features of cancer recurrence in diversion urine specimens. METHODS: A 10-year retrospective review of archival urinary diversion specimens was conducted. For abnormal cytology cases, cytology slides were reviewed, and their cytomorphology and available corresponding histopathology were documented...

A 50-year-old man presented to the genitourinary medicine clinic with a 3-year history of skin-colored circular papules over the shaft and glans of the penis. There were multiple lesions that were initially small, around 0.3 cm in diameter, and gradually enlarged. Physical examination revealed five nodules over the glans and shaft of the penis, with the largest lesion measuring 3×1 cm over the lateral aspect of the shaft (Figure 1). There were no similar lesions elsewhere. There was no lymphadenopathy and the rest of the examination was unremarkable...

The number of studies reporting lymphoma as a secondary tumor has gradually increased. However, few studies have reported that occurrence of lymphoma as a secondary tumor following treatment for penile carcinoma, particularly cases in which the lymphoma was diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration cytology and flow cytometry. The present study reports the case of a 62-year-old male patient who was troubled with frequent urination and repeated chest tightness for 5 years. The diagnosis upon admission was penile carcinoma...

Fibrolipomas are an infrequent type of lipomas. We describe a case of a man suffering from subcutaneous penile fibrolipoma, who twelve months earlier has been submitted to augmentative phalloplasty due to aesthetic dysmorphophobia. The same patient three years earlier has been submitted to three-component hydraulic penile prostheses implantation due to erectile dysfunction. After six months from removing of the mass, the penile elongation and penile enlargement were stable, the prostheses were correctly functioning and the patient was satisfied with his sexual intercourse and life...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord injury patients, who manage their bladder using a condom catheter, are at risk of developing urine retention when they consume large volumes of alcoholic drinks within a short period of time. CASE PRESENTATION: A male tetraplegic patient had been managing satisfactorily penile sheath drainage for 8 years. He went out socializing during which he consumed large volumes of alcohol but did not take any recreational drugs. The following morning, he noticed distension of the lower abdomen and passed urine in dribbles...

UNLABELLED: The radical soft-tissue mobilization (RSTM) technique has been proposed as an alternative for staged reconstruction of bladder exstrophy. In this video, we demonstrate the successive steps of this technique. METHODS: A newborn male with classic bladder exstrophy underwent bladder closure without pelvic osteotomies at birth; he then underwent RSTM at 1 year of age. TECHNIQUE: Mobilization: The RSTM involved simultaneous intra-pelvic and perineal dissection, aiming at full mobilization of potential urethral sphincter striated structures, levatores ani muscles, pudendal pedicles and corpora cavernosa from their attachment on the pubic bones...

Background. Tuberculosis of the penis (TBP) is rare. Aim. To review the literature. Method. Various internet data bases were searched. Literature Review. TBP could be primary or secondary, may develop following circumcision performed by a person who had pulmonary Tb, and may be transmitted to the penis from ejaculation, contamination from clothing, or from contact with endometrial secretions, following an earlier pulmonary Tb or Tb elsewhere. TBP presents with a painless/painful small nodule, ulcer, mass on penis which gradually enlarges, and induration/swelling of penis, with or without erectile dysfunction...

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to steroid 11β-hydroxylase deficiency is the second most common form of CAH, resulting from a mutation in the CYP11B1 gene. Steroid 11β-hydroxylase deficiency results in excessive mineralcorticoids and androgen production leading to hypertension, precocious puberty with acne, enlarged penis, and hyperpigmentation of scrotum of genetically male infants. In the present study, we reported 3 male cases from a Saudi family who presented with penile enlargement, progressive darkness of skin, hypertension, and cardiomyopathy...

PURPOSE: In patients with penile cancer (PeCa) and increased risk of inguinal lymphatic dissemination, inguinal lymphadenectomy offers a direct histological staging as the most reliable tool for assessment of the nodal metastasic status and a definitive oncologic treatment simultaneously. However, peri- and/or postoperative mutilating sequalae often occurn. We report on clinical outcome and complications of a limited inguinal lymph node (LN) dissection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical and histopathological data of all patients with PeCa who underwent limited inguinal lymphadenectomy (LIL) at our institution between 1986 and 2012 were comprehensively analyzed...

Massive localized lymphedema (MLL) is an uncommon benign skin lesion typically presenting with prominent edema and vascular proliferation in the adipose tissue of lower limbs. When rarely occurring in scrotum, it instead is characterized by a striking proliferation of dermal smooth muscle bundles mimicking acquired smooth muscle hamartoma of dartos. The authors report a rare case of scrotal MLL. A 57-year-old obese man with a history of previous surgery for rectal adenocarcinoma, 20 years earlier, presented with progressive nodular enlargement of the scrotum for 2 years, causing discomfort, difficulty in ambulation, and cosmetic problems...

A 70-year-old man presented with a slowly enlarging glans penis lesion measuring approximately 3 × 2 × 2 cm. On examination, the lesion was indurated with no induration of the glans penis deep to the lesion. He had no palpable lymphadenopathy. A glans sparing surgical excision was performed. Pathology demonstrated a squamoproliferative lesion with hyperkeratosis, and deep margin biopsy demonstrated no carcinoma. Cutaneous penile horns are hyperkeratotic lesions and may be associated with synchronous or metachronous squamous cell carcinoma...

Smooth muscle hamartoma (SMH) is a rare benign proliferation of the smooth muscle. It usually arises on the back and proximal extremities, although it develops on the scrotum in rare cases. Here, we present a 58-year-old man who presented with a huge mass of the scrotum, which was first noticed 10 years previously. The scrotum was considerably enlarged and affected the patient's gait. We performed wide excision of the mass, measuring 32.5 × 20 × 14 cm in size and weighing 3600 g. The residual uninvolved scrotal skin flap was well vascularised and elastic, and the testis could be properly contained within the scrotum after primary closure of the defect...

A castrated 9-year-old intact male boerboel cross-breed dog was presented with a month-long history of stranguria. On physical examination, a mass was noted at the caudal extremity of the os penis. Haematology, serum chemistry and urinalysis were all unremarkable. Abdominal and urethral ultrasound demonstrated an enlarged bladder and a dilated urethra, which was followed to the caudal extremity of the os penis. A hyperechoic, roughly spherical,vascularised mass was noted at the caudal os penis, which resulted in obstruction of the penile urethra...

We report the successful use of fetoscopy to treat a case of severe low urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) secondary to a congenital megalourethra. A second trimester male fetus presented at 21 weeks of gestation with massive dilatation of the penile urethra. In addition, bilateral hydronephrosis, an enlarged and hypertrophic bladder, with progressive oligohydramnios were found, suggesting poor prognosis. Extensive counselling was performed and, after the approval from the local ethics committee and informed consent, patients accepted fetal therapy by fetoscopy...

We investigated the incidence of inguinal lymph node metastasis in 66 penile cancer patients with no palpable or visibly enlarged inguinal lymph nodes (cN0). Median follow up interval was 35. 7 months. During follow up, 14 patients (21.2%) had inguinal lymph node metastasis and 6 patients died of cancer. Five-year disease-free survival was 77.3%. Univariate analysis demonstrated that local tumor staging (T), differentiation, lymphovascular invasion (LVI), and tumor infiltration pattern (INF, Yamamoto-Kohama grading system) were associated with the incidence of inguinal lymphnode metastasis...

A 7-year-old neutered male Jack Russell terrier-cross was presented for signs of recurrent paraphimosis, despite previous surgical enlargement of the preputial ostium. Revision surgery was performed using a combination of preputial advancement and phallopexy, which resulted in complete and permanent coverage of the glans penis by the prepuce, and at 1 year postoperatively, no recurrence of paraphimosis had been observed. The combined techniques allow preservation of the normal penile anatomy, are relatively simple to perform and provide a cosmetic result...

Primary penile melanomas are exceedingly rare (less than 1% of primary penile cancers), 221 cases being reported to date in PubMed indexed medical literature. More than half of the cases occur on the gland, usually in older people than on cutaneous counterpart and have unfavourable prognosis mainly due to the belated diagnosis. We report the case of a 77 years old male diagnosed with a pigmented ulcerated nodular melanoma of the gland with maximal thickness of 4.5 mm, mitotic index 8 mitoses/mm2 and vascular emboli...
