OBJECTIVES: To report our experience with one case of penile silicone granuloma, that has clinical interest for its unfrequent presentation. METHODS/RESULTS: We report the case of a patient with sexual dysfunction secondary to subcutaneous injection of liquid silicone in the penis resulting in a penile granuloma and migration of the particles to the penile root and midline scrotal raphe. We proceeded to the surgical excision of the granuloma and migrated particles, repairing the penile defect with scrotal skin. CONCLUSIONS: Subcutaneous injection of liquid silicone is a practice that does not have any justification because of its devastating effects and requires major perations for the elimination of the injected material.
