ABSTRACT Objective To present the evolution and the recent data on the etiology, diagnosis, management and outcomes of penile fracture (PF) with concomitant urethral injury. Materials and Methods We searched the Pubmed database between 1998 and 2019 using the following key words: "penile fracture", "fracture of penis", "trauma to penis", "rupture of corpora cavernosa", "urethral injury", "urethral rupture" and "urethral reconstruction". Results The incidence of urethral lesion in patients with PF varies by geographic region and etiology. Blood in the meatus, hematuria and voiding symptoms are highly indicative of urethral rupture. The diagnosis of PF is eminently clinical and complementary exams are not necessary. The treatment consists of urethral reconstruction and the most common complications found are urethral stenosis and urethrocutaneous fistula. Conclusion PF is an uncommon urological emergency, particularly in cases with urethral involvement. Urethral injury should be suspected in the presence of suggestive clinical signs, and diagnosis is usually clinical. Urgent urethral reconstruction is mandatory and produces satisfactory results with low levels of complications.

ABSTRACT Purpose: To study the effect of penile constriction devices used on a large series of patients who presented at our emergency facility. We explored treatment options to prevent a wide range of vascular and mechanical injuries occurring due to penile entrapment. Materials and Methods: Between January 2001 and March 2016, 26 patients with penile entrapment were admitted to our facility and prospectively evaluated. Results: The time that elapsed from penile constrictor application to hospital admission varied from 10 hours to 6 weeks (mean: 22.8 hours). Non-metallic devices were used by 18 patients (66.6%) while the other nine (33.4%) had used metallic objects. Acute urinary retention was present in six (23%) patients, of whom four (66.6%) underwent percutaneous surgical cystotomy and two (33.4%) underwent simple bladder catheterization. The main reason for penile constrictor placement was erectile dysfunction, accounting for 15 (55.5%) cases. Autoerotic intention, psychiatric disorders, and sexual violence were responsible in five (18.5%), five (18.5%), and two (7.4%) cases, respectively. The mean hospital stay was 18 hours (range, 6 hours to 3 weeks). Conclusion: Penile strangulation treatment must be immediate through the extraction of the foreign body, avoiding vascular impairments that can lead to serious complications. Most patients present with low-grade injuries and use penile constrictors due to erectile dysfunction. Removal of constrictor device can be challenging. The use of specific tools for achieving penile release from constrictors is a fast, safe and effective method. Patients with urinary retention may require urinary diversion.

ABSTRACT CONTEXT: Lymphedema consists of extracellular fluid retention caused by lymphatic obstruction. In chronic forms, fat and fibrous tissue accumulation is observed. Genital lymphedema is a rare condition in developed countries and may have primary or acquired etiology. It generally leads to urinary, sexual and social impairment. Clinical treatment usually has low effectiveness, and surgical resection is frequently indicated. CASE REPORT: We report a case of a male-to-female transgender patient who was referred for treatment of chronic genital lymphedema. She had a history of pelvic radiotherapy to treat anal cancer and of liquid silicone injections to the buttock and thigh regions for esthetic purposes. Radiological examinations showed signs both of tissue infiltration by liquid silicone and of granulomas, lymphadenopathy and lymphedema. Surgical treatment was performed on the area affected, in which lymphedematous tissue was excised from the scrotum while preserving the penis and testicles, with satisfactory results. Histopathological examination showed alterations compatible with tissue infiltration by exogenous material, along with chronic lymphedema. CONCLUSION: Genital lymphedema may be caused by an association of lesions due to liquid silicone injections and radiotherapy in the pelvic region. Cancer treatment decisions for patients who previously underwent liquid silicone injection should take this information into account, since it may represent a risk factor for radiotherapy complications.

RESUMO CONTEXTO: O linfedema consiste de retenção de fluido extracelular causada por obstrução linfática. Nas formas crônicas, observa-se acúmulo de tecido adiposo e fibrose. O linfedema genital é uma doença rara em países desenvolvidos e pode ter etiologia primária ou adquirida, em geral cursando com disfunções urinária e sexual, bem como com prejuízo do convívio social. O tratamento clínico é, em geral, pouco efetivo, indicando-se com frequência a abordagem cirúrgica, com excisão da área afetada. RELATO DE CASO: Relata-se o caso de paciente feminina transgênero, encaminhada para tratamento de linfedema genital crônico. Havia antecedente pessoal de tratamento de câncer de canal anal com radioterapia pélvica e de injeções de silicone líquido em glúteos e coxas com finalidade estética. Exames radiológicos mostraram tanto sinais de infiltração tecidual por silicone líquido como granulomas e linfadenopatia como de linfedema. Foi realizado o tratamento cirúrgico da área afetada, com excisão do tecido linfadenomatoso do escroto, preservando o pênis e testículos, com resultado satisfatório. A análise histopatológica mostrou achados compatíveis com infiltração tecidual por material exógeno, bem como com linfedema crônico. CONCLUSÃO: O linfedema genital pode ser causado pela associação de lesão por injeção de silicone líquido e radioterapia na região pélvica. As decisões no tratamento de neoplasias em pacientes previamente submetidos a injeção de silicone líquido devem levar em conta esse fato, já que pode representar fator de risco para complicações de tratamento radioterápico.

La púrpura de Schonlein-Henoch es responsable de la mayoría de los casos de vasculitis sistémica en niños. La forma de presentación clásica se caracteriza por púrpura palpable, glomerulonefritis, artralgias y dolor abdominal. Aunque manifestaciones genitourinarias, como la afectación testicular y escrotal, han sido ampliamente descritas, otras, como la afectación peniana, son muy raras. Presentamos el caso de un varón de 6 años que consultó por presentar un exantema purpúrico en el glande, el prepucio y el cuerpo del pene, junto con edema doloroso en dicha región. En los tres días previos, había presentado una historia de fiebre, exantema purpúrico palpable en las nalgas y los miembros inferiores, y artralgia de la muñeca derecha. Fue ingresado con el diagnóstico de púrpura de Schonlein-Henoch con afectación peniana y se inició un tratamiento corticoideo oral (prednisona). A los dos días del inicio del tratamiento, se observó una notable mejoría de los síntomas.

Schonlein-Henoch purpura accounts for the majority of cases of systemic vasculitis in children. Classical presentation is characterized by palpable purpura, glomerulonephritis, arthralgias and abdominal pain. Although genitourinary manifestations, in form of testicular and scrotal involvement, have been widely described, penile involvement remains an extremely rare complication. We report a case of a 6-year-old boy who presented with purpuric rash on the glans, prepuce and penile shaft, with painful edema in the penile region. He also had a 3-days history of fever, palpable purpuric rash on the buttocks and lower extremities along with right wrist pain. He was admitted with the diagnosis of Schonlein-Henoch purpura with penile involvement. After 2 days on oral steroids therapy (prednisone) a marked improvement was observed.

A pitiríase liquenoide é dermatose incomum, idiopática, com espectro clínico-histopatológico onde inclui a forma varioliforme aguda (doença de Mucha-Habermann), sua variante febril úlceronecrótica e a forma crônica. Manifestações sistêmicas podem ocorrer na variante febril úlcero-necrótica, com relatos de casos fatais em adultos. Relata-se o caso de um paciente jovem, com diagnóstico clínico e histopatológico de doença de Mucha-Habermann, variante febril úlcero-necrótica, e acometimento mucoso exuberante, fato ocasional, mesmo nas formas mais graves de pitiríase liquenoide. Além do aspecto clínico inusitado, demonstra-se excelente resultado terapêutico, com a associação de prednisona e metotrexato.

Pityriasis lichenoides is a rare idiopathic cutaneous disorder, with a clinical-histopathological spectrum comprising the acute varioliform form (Mucha-Habermann's disease), its febrile ulceronecrotic variant, and its chronic form. Systemic manifestations may occur in the febrile ulceronecrotic variant, with reports of adult mortality. The case of a young male patient with clinical and histopathological diagnosis of Mucha-Habermann’s disease, febrile ulceronecrotic variant, with severe mucosal involvement - an occasional incidence even in the most severe forms of pityriasis lichenoides - is presented. In addition to the atypical clinical aspect, an excellent therapeutic result is shown with the association of prednisone and methotrexate.

El molusco contagioso es una enfermedad infectocontagiosa causada por un poxvirus. Se trata de una dermatosis viral común, cuyo curso clínico reviste carácter benigno. Capaz de comprometer la piel en cualquier territorio corporal, la localización en mucosas es sumamente infrecuente, habiéndose encontrado en la literatura mundial consultada un solo caso aislado en mucosa oral. Su incidencia es mayor en los niños, predominando en el sexo masculino en este grupo etario. Cuando afecta a los adultos, suele revestir el carácter de enfermedad de transmisión sexual, localizándose en la piel de los genitales externos. Puede desarrollarse en pacientes inmunocompetentes y/o en inmunodeprimidos, manifestándose en este último caso como formas diseminadas y/o por localizaciones poco comunes. Presentamos un caso de molusco contagioso situado en glande, de interés clínico por lo atípico de esta localización
