SALAS CABRERA, René  and  MORE PEREZ, Francisco. Giant scrotal lymphedema. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.2, pp.195-198. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report the case of a patient with long-term giant genital lymphedema as a consequence of partial penectomy with bilateral inguinal lymphadenectomy 26 years before. Methods: 58-year-old male patient consulting for genital volume increase (penis and scrotum). Diagnostic tests were performed and surgery was indicated. Results: Complete bilateral scrotal excision including testicles and complete amputation of the penile remnant were carried out. Urethra was anastomosed to skin in the root of the scrotum. Post-operative outcome was satisfactory. Conclusions: Genital lymphedema is a disease associated with severe aesthetic and psychological disorders. The present case demonstrates that these patients may be rehabilitated.
