MATEOS BLANCO, Jesús et al. Non venereal sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.3, pp.298-300. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report a clinical case with a diagnosis of nonvenereal sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis and revision of the literature existing on this pathology. Clinical case: We describe the case of a 28 years old man who has presented for 10 days an induration of cartilaginous consistence next to the sulcus coronarius penis and symptomatic during the erections, compatible with the diagnosis of sclerosing lymphangitis. Results: Sexual abstinence was recommended and we kept an expectating attitude so ceasing the process after 4 weeks. Conclusions: Nonveneral sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis is a process of unknown etiology, related to an increase of sexual activity, wich is during the erection and it has a self-limited character, so the initial treatment is conservative.

Keywords : Sclerosing lymphangitis; Penis; Nonveneral lymphangitis.
