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

Int J STD AIDS 2021 Apr 29:9564624211010056. 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

Comparative risk of genital infections associated with sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors.

Diabetes Obes Metab 2019 02 11;21(2):434-438. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

The extent to which sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors increase the risk of genital infections in routine clinical care, compared with other antidiabetic medications, is not clear, or whether the increased risk is consistent across gender or age subgroups, within individual SGLT2 agents, or if it is more pronounced at a particular time after treatment initiation. We conducted a retrospective cohort study using two US commercial claims databases (2013-2017). In the primary analysis, 1:1 propensity score-matched cohorts of female and male subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus initiating SGLT2 versus dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors were created.
