Purpose Of Review: Genital dermatology represents a challenge to many providers. Though dermatologic lesions involving the genitalia may present to any of a number of practices, ranging from primary care to urology, gynecology, and dermatology, few training programs provide significant training regarding the diagnosis and management of genital dermatologic lesions. The purpose of this review is to provide urologists with an overview of common genital dermatological lesions that may be encountered in a clinic. Read More

Venerophobia is a lesser recognized entity in clinical practice though the prevalence is on the rise. Our observations of current trends in the Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STI) clinic indicate that venerophobia is not an uncommon presentation among youngsters following an isolated or multiple episodes of sexual contact. This has a major bearing on the mental as well as sexual health. Read More

Pearly penile papules (PPP) are common, benign lesions that appear on the corona of the glans penis during adolescence or early adulthood. Despite their benign nature, PPP are known to cause significant distress because of their resemblance to sexually transmitted infections such as condyloma acuminata. PPP can be clinically distinguished based on their uniform, dome-shaped papules that orient in one to two rows around the glans penis. Read More

Traumatic neuromas are tumors resulting from hyperplasia of axons and nerve sheath cells after section or injury to the nervous tissue. We present a case of this tumor, confirmed by anatomopathological examination, in a male patient with history of circumcision. Knowledge of this entity is very important in achieving the differential diagnosis with other lesions that affect the genital area such as condyloma acuminata, bowenoid papulosis, lichen nitidus, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, achrochordon and pearly penile papules.

Pearly penile papules (PPP) can cause significant psychological morbidity. Herein we report the successful use of a macrofractionated carbon dioxide laser at full-field ablative density settings for the treatment of PPP in a 17-year-old boy using local anesthetic alone. Our experience leads us to believe that PPP can be successfully treated in the pediatric and adolescent populations using this novel and relatively noninvasive technique. Read More

Background: Even after a thorough examination it can be difficult to distinguish a normal penile anatomical variant from pathology needing treatment.
Objective: This article aims to assist diagnosis by outlining a series of common penile anatomical variants and comparing them to common pathological conditions.
Discussion: The problems considered include pearly penile papules, penile sebaceous glands (Fordyce spots), Tyson glands, angiokeratomas of the scrotum, lymphocoele, penile warts, molluscum contagiosum, folliculitis and scabies. Read More

Importance: Pearly penile papules (PPPs) are benign, dome-shaped lesions found around the corona of the penis. Treatments have varied in the past; however, to our knowledge, the use of the pulsed dye laser (PDL) for this condition has never been reported in the literature. Such papules are histologically analogous to angiofibromas; thus, we report PDL is an appropriate, effective, and nonablative method of treatment. Read More

Background: Penile pearly papules (PPP) are benign angiofibromas of the penis, frequently misdiagnosed as genital warts (condylomata acuminata). The lesions are often the reason for significant distress of the patient and his sexual partner, thus requiring occasional treatment, removing the lesions in a non-aggressive manner.
Methods: Forty-five patients with PPP were treated with 2940 nm Er:YAG laser (Skinlight, FOTONA, Slovenia) in ablation mode. Read More

Introduction: So far there have been no papers analyzing the incidence of 'non-pathological' lesions or normal variants on the male external genitalia. Subsequently, the number of patients consulted due to the presence of such lesions remains unknown. The aim of the study was to estimate the incidence of normal variants in patients who were consulted due to lesions on the skin or mucosa of the male external genitalia. Read More

Background: A large variety of infectious and non-infectious penile growths may occur on the glans or shaft with variable clinical presentation. Although most of these penile growths can be diagnosed through medical history and clinical examination, small, single or early lesions may not be easily recognized or differentiated by their clinical features. Videodermatoscopy (VD) is a non-invasive technique that has greatly improved the diagnostic accuracy for pigmented and non-pigmented skin disorders. Read More

Objective: The aim of this study was to identify human papillomavirus lesions in a group of men whose sexual partners had cervical intraepithelial lesions associated with low-grade HPV confirmed by PCR-DNA. We carried out a correlation between urethral cytology penoscopy data and PCR-DNA results.
Methods: We studied 100 male volunteers with an age range of 21-45 (median 30 years) and divided them into two groups according to the identified virus; two groups were conformed, a high risk and a low risk virus. Read More

This study assesses the prevalence and correlates of pearly penile papules (PPP) in two non-genitourinary (GU) medicine male cohorts (<25 and >50 years). PPP were categorised in 188 university students (<25 years), based on self-examination, and 70 patients (>50 years), based on clinician examination. PPP were categorised from 1 to 4, based on increasing papule size and distribution. Read More

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and HPV-associated penile lesions are frequently found in male sexual partners of women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). To determine the significance of these findings, we studied the prevalence of HPV and HPV associated penile lesions in a male hospital population with non-STD complaints. Penoscopy was performed after application of acetic acid to identify flat lesions, papular lesions, condylomata acuminata and pearly penile papules (PPPs). Read More

Background: Pearly penile papules are angiofibromas found on the corona and sulcus of the glans penis. While these represent a benign condition, psychological and cosmetic concerns often prompt patients to seek therapeutic removal of these lesions. Multiple therapeutic modalities have been reported; however, use of CO2 laser has proven to be the most effective to date. Read More

This study of two hundred men attending a department of genitourinary medicine documented a prevalence of pearly penile papules of 48%. Most men with papules had only a few lesions of less than 1 mm in size (73%). Nineteen per cent had papules of less than 1 mm in size extending around the corona and 8% had lesions greater than 1 mm in size extending around the corona. Read More

Treatment of pearly penile papules was performed both with a conventional continuous-wave (CW) and a newer generation high energy pulsed carbon dioxide laser. When compared to the short pulsed laser, the CW laser, using relatively low power densities, provided superior hemostasis and improved visualization of the operative field. Despite the increase in thermal injury, wound healing was not compromised. Read More

Male patients attending a sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic may present with dermatoses that are not due to sexually transmitted diseases. A prospective study on 467 male patients attending a public STD clinic showed various dermatoses which were either anatomical variants (pearly penile papules in 67 patients [14. Read More

Pearly penile papules clinically resemble the sexually transmitted papular variant of genital condylomata. Histologically, however, pearly penile papules consist of fibropapillomata that lack the characteristic morphologic features of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. To study the possible association of HPV infections with pearly penile papules, we examined tissue specimens from 13 men with pearly penile papules with and without associated penile condylomata.
