An epidemiologic overview of a tertiary referral practice for male paediatric lichen sclerosus.

Paediatr Child Health 2020 Jun 20;25(4):241-245. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta.

Within the paediatric population, changing patterns of circumcisions have confounded the epidemiology and presentation of lichen sclerosus (LS). We sought to evaluate the incidence, demographics, and clinical features of patients presenting to a single Albertan paediatric urologist with LS. This retrospective descriptive analysis evaluated all paediatric patients referred for phimosis to a single paediatric urologist in Edmonton, Alberta. Read More

Recent advances in understanding and managing Lichen Sclerosus.

F1000Res 2020 15;9. Epub 2020 May 15.

Division of Surgery, Department of Surgery and Cancer, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, UK.

Lichen sclerosus (LS), or balanitis xerotica obliterans as it was previously known, is a chronic inflammatory lymphocyte-mediated scarring dermatosis that often affects the preputial skin and glans, leading to phimosis and urethral strictures if left untreated. We present a narrative review of the literature assessing its aetiology and pathogenesis and discuss its links to penile cancer and its medical and surgical management. Possible hypotheses for the development of LS include chronic exposure to trapped urine, leading to changes in the epithelial structure. Read More

Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans Associated With Differentiated Penile Intraepithelial Neoplasia and "Bramble-Bush" Elastic Fibers Accumulation: A Finding Not Specific for Penicillamine Intake.

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 May 28. Epub 2020 May 28.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Arnau de Vilanova, Valencia, Spain.

We describe the association of balanitis xerotica obliterans and differentiated penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PeIN) with dermal elastosis and "bramble-bush" elastic fibers in a diabetic patient with no history of penicillamine intake. An 84-year-old man presented with urethral obstruction syndrome that required postectomy, meatotomy, and foreskin excision. Histopathological examination revealed changes of lichen sclerosus and differentiated PeIN. Read More

Euphorbia urethritis: The minor scourge of the Garden Spurge.

Int J STD AIDS 2020 May 29:956462419894447. Epub 2020 May 29.

Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, Hertfordshire, UK.

A 55-year-old man, without evident sexual risk, presented with symptoms of a urethritis and balanitis. This followed directly from exposure to organic residue from a domestic plant, the Euphorbia or Garden Spurge, found on his fingers after gardening. A review of relevant medical literature reveals little putative association between exposure to this plant and genital symptomatology. Read More

Is Non-Chlamydial Non-Gonococcal Urethritis Associated with Significant Clinical Complications in Men? A Systematic Review.

Curr Urol 2020 Mar 20;14(1):1-13. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, Department of Urology, Lister Hospital, Stevenage.

Background: It is estimated that between 50 and 89% of non-gonococcal urethritis is not caused by . Associations between non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis (NCNGU) with balanoposthitis, epididymo-orchitis and reactive arthritis have been suggested, but evidence to support these often-theoretical relationships is sparse and further investigation is called for. Concerns over increasing antimicrobial resistance has rendered the need for clarity over this question ever more pressing in recent years. Read More

Douglas Cohen Department of Paediatric Surgery, The University of Sydney School of Medicine, The Children's Hospital at Westmead Clinical School, The Faculty of Medicine and Health, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a severe, chronic, dermatosis characterised by inflammatory, sclerotic, pruritic lesions that causes significant morbidity in patients of all genders and ages. In boys, the lesions typically affect the foreskin and glans (termed balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO)), leading to phimosis and potentially meatal stenosis. The incidence of the disease is not well reported but the average age of affected boys is 8 years (range 1-16). Read More

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia and is associated with several comorbidities and complications. Genital infection is one such complication that is often associated with diabetes mellitus (DM). Even though abnormalities in immune system, high urine glucose, and bladder dysfunction are important contributors for the increased risk of genitourinary symptoms, yet the possible role of pharmacologically induced glucosuria cannot be completely overlooked in such patients.

Introduction: Circumcision has long been the mainstay of management for genitourinary lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LS); however, there has been growing interest in surgical techniques that preserve the foreskin.

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess population-based surgical management of LS in England and determine surgical outcomes.

Study Design: Cases of LS treated in English NHS trusts (2002-2011) were extracted from the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) Database. Read More

Accuracy of dermoscopy in distinguishing erythroplasia of Queyrat from common forms of chronic balanitis: results from a multicentric observational study.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 May 11;33(5):966-972. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Medical Area, Institute of Dermatology, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

Background: Clinical differentiation of erythroplasia of Queyrat (EQ) and chronic forms of balanitis may be challenging, especially in early phases or in overlapping cases. Dermoscopy has been shown to be a useful supportive tool in facilitating the distinction between tumoral and inflammatory skin conditions; yet, data on EQ and balanitis are scarce or sparse.

Objectives: To systematically assess the dermoscopic features of both EQ and common forms of chronic balanitis and to investigate the accuracy of dermoscopy in distinguishing these conditions. Read More

Risk Factors for Penile Intraepithelial Neoplasia: A Population-based Register Study in Sweden, 2000-2012.

Acta Derm Venereol 2019 Mar;99(3):315-320

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Skane University Hospital, SE-214 28 Malmö, Sweden. Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Skane University Hospital, SE-214 28 Malmö, Sweden.

Studies on risk factors for penile intraepithelial neo-plasia have been small in size, have not distinguished penile intraepithelial neoplasia from invasive cancer, and have relied on self-reported information. This study investigated risk factors for penile intraepithelial neoplasia in a cohort of 580 penile intraepithelial neoplasia cases and 3,436 controls using information from 7 Swedish registers. Cases with penile intraepithelial neoplasia had increased odds ratios (ORs) for inflammatory skin diseases (14. Read More

Balanitis xerotica obliterans: a review of diagnosis and management.

Int J Dermatol 2019 Jul 12;58(7):777-781. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Dermatology, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO), or penile lichen sclerosus, is a progressive sclerosing inflammatory dermatosis of the glans penis and foreskin. It is associated with significant morbidity and may result in impaired urinary and sexual function. It was initially described by Stuhmer in 1928, named after its pathological features, and is considered the male equivalent of vulvar lichen sclerosis (LS). Read More

Can lichen sclerosus be diagnosed by preputial appearance or symptoms?

Res Rep Urol 2018 18;10:89-94. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Department of Pediatric Urology, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kawasumi, Mizuho-cho, Mizuho-ku, Nagoya, Japan,

Introduction: Lichen sclerosus (LS), or balanitis xerotica obliterans, is a chronic, inflammatory disease accompanied by cicatrizing skin conditions resulting in pathologic phimosis. LS can be detected clinically by the whitish appearance of the glans or the foreskin, thickened, nonretractable foreskin, dysuria, and spraying. However, diagnosis is confirmed histopathologically.
