PALACIOS, Alberto et al. Penile abscess: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.8, pp.809-811. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To report one case of penile abscess, with special reference to diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Methods: One case of penile abscess is presented in a patient referred for penile swelling. Results: During surgical exploration it showed to be a corpora cavernosum rupture with drainage of a small volume of purulent fluid. Conclusions: Penile abscess is uncommon. High frequency ultrasonography is a reliable diagnostic imaging method. We were able to incise the affected area of the corpus cavernosum and glans safely, and with appropriate antibiotics this patient was treated successfully.
