PALMERO MARTI, J.L. et al. Skin penile necrosis as a complication from urinary condom catheter uses. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.2, pp.155-158. ISSN 0210-4806.

We illustrate a case of penile skin necrosis in a patient suffering from urinary incontinence caused by a secondary neurogenic bladder that, in turn, results from a spinal cord injury. The skin necrosis developed out of continuous pressure from the condom catheter. We report the case bearing into consideration that these complications are extremely rare and that references in the literature to the topic are likewise scarce. However, due to the high frequency of patients suffering from incontinence who use these devices, we believe it necessary to account for the possible consequences which might derive from an incorrect use of them.

Palabras clave : Penile skin necrosis; Condom catéter; Neurogenic bladder in spinal cord injury.
