Exploring reflectance confocal microscopy as a non-invasive diagnostic tool for genital lichen sclerosus.

Exp Ther Med 2022 Jun 26;23(6):410. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Institute of Clinical Sciences, University of Gothenburg, SE-41346 Gothenburg, Sweden.

The diagnosis of genital lichen sclerosus (LS) is often confirmed by obtaining a skin biopsy, which can lead to unwanted complications and is uncomfortable in the sensitive genital area. Thus, there is a need of finding novel, non-invasive techniques that can rapidly and accurately diagnose LS. The present study investigated the potential for reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) to diagnose LS compared with healthy penile skin and other common penile skin disorders in males. Read More

Sexually transmitted infections in the elderly: A 6-year retrospective study in a tertiary care hospital in New Delhi.

Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS 2021 Jul-Dec;42(2):144-149. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of Dermatology, Maulana Azad Medical College, Delhi, India.

Background: Worldwide, a steady rise in the incidence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the elderly has been reported and is attributed to aging, unsafe sexual practices, and delayed health-care seeking behavior, leading to a delayed diagnosis and persistence of infection in the community. The aim of this study was to assess the demographic profile, risk factors, and clinical pattern of geriatric STIs.

Aims: The aim of the study was to assess the demographic profile, risk factors, and clinical pattern of STIs among patients aged ≥60 years presenting to the STI clinic in the dermatology outpatient department at a large tertiary care hospital in New Delhi, over a period of 6 years. Read More

Urologic dermatology: a comprehensive foray into the noninfectious etiologies of balanitis.

Int J Dermatol 2021 Nov 26. Epub 2021 Nov 26.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Balanitis is classically defined as inflammation of the glans penis, often also encompassing the prepuce (balanoposthitis). Several investigations have found that a sizable proportion of urology clinic visits are due to balanitis or related complaints. Balanitis can have numerous complications, including severe pain, urethral stenosis, phimosis, sexual dysfunction, and if untreated, malignancy. Read More

[Buiatrics: What's your diagnosis?]

Schweiz Arch Tierheilkd 2021 Nov;164(11):791-796

Klinik für Rinder, Stiftung Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover.

Introduction: Therapy of a high-grade balanoposthitis with partial penile and preputial prolapse after unsuccessful initial therapy of a ten-year-old dexter bull. Two punctures, about 1 cm depth were found at the base of the prolapsed tissue, which were probably caused by partially perforating U-stitches by the local veterinarian. The highly inflamed and swollen tissue disabled the penis to retract. Read More

Creation of a pioneering interdisciplinary genital dermatology unit for Hispanic men: First 269 patients.

Int J STD AIDS 2021 09 29;32(10):957-962. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Male Genital Dermatology (Urodermatology) Unit, 226552Hospital de Clínicas "Dr Manuel Quintela", Montevideo, Uruguay.

The role of circumcision in partially protecting against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and other dermatoses has been documented. Neonatal circumcision is not routinely practiced in South America. Although it is logical to assume that male genital dermatoses are more prevalent in Hispanic men, they are underrepresented in the existing literature. Read More

Circumcision devices versus standard surgical techniques in adolescent and adult male circumcisions.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2021 03 31;3:CD012250. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Cochrane South Africa, South African Medical Research Council, Cape Town, South Africa.

Background: Medical circumcisions are among the most common surgical procedures performed in males. The usual indications are phimosis (inability to completely retract the foreskin and expose the glans due to a congenital or acquired constriction of the prepuce), paraphimosis (when the foreskin is not pulled back over the glans after retraction resulting in a tight constricting band which causes swelling of the distal penis and acute discomfort), balanoposthitis (erythema and edema of the prepuce and glans) and balanitis (inflammation is confined to the glans; the foreskin is usually non-retractile). Circumcision devices have been developed to shorten the operative time, simplify techniques, and improve safety and cosmetic outcomes. Read More

Aust Vet J 2021 Mar 13;99(3):89-92. Epub 2020 Dec 13.

School of Veterinary Science, The University of Queensland, Gatton, Queensland, 4343, Australia.

Male guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus), especially older animals, are prone to urethritis and posthitis. Severe, chronic balanoposthitis/posthitis can result in fibrosis, localised infection and the deposition of mineralised plaques in the prepuce. Severe cases may require surgical intervention, such as penile amputation and urethrostomy, to achieve resolution. Read More

Rapid and simple colorimetric loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for the detection of Bovine alphaherpesvirus 1.

J Virol Methods 2021 03 10;289:114041. Epub 2020 Dec 10.

Institute of Virology, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich, 8057, Zurich, Switzerland.

As the causative agent of Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) and Infectious Pustular Vulvovaginitis/Balanoposthitis (IPV/IPB), Bovine alphaherpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) is responsible for high economic losses in the cattle industry worldwide. This study aimed to establish a fast, colorimetric loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for the detection of viral DNA. Phenol red is used as pH-sensitive readout, relying on a distinct color change from pink to yellow in case of a positive reaction. Read More

Herpesvirus diseases of domestic animals and game species in the Slovak Republic.

Acta Virol 2020 ;64(4):409-416

Herpesviruses are DNA viruses that cause serious latent infections in humans and animals. These pathogens significantly influence the animal health and economy of animal husbandry. The reduction of production parameters, abortions, birth of weak individuals and by costs associated with the elimination and monitoring of herpesvirus diseases are among the most serious harms caused by herpesviruses.

Streptococcus pyogenes balanoposthitis.

IDCases 2020 20;21:e00832. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Dermatology, JR Tokyo General Hospital, Japan.

The main causative organism of balanoposthitis in sexually active adolescents is reportedly the group B hemolytic streptococcus. While cases of balanoposthitis caused by group A streptococcal infection in children have been reported, their occurrence in the adolescent age group is relatively rare. We describe a case of balanoposthitis caused by (group A streptococcus) in a 31-year-old man who presented to the hospital with complaints of pain and swelling in his penile foreskin for the past 6 days.

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
