SERRANO DE LA CRUZ TORRIJOS, Francisco et al. Penile cellulitis after oral sex. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.8, pp.924-929. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Nowadays, there is the high prevalence of sexual intercourse including oral sex, which implies some peculiarities in the infections, balanitis and cellulitis they may produce. Methods: We report two new cases of penile cellulitis treated in the urology department in our hospital. Discussion: We review the indications of prophylaxis, and the medical and surgical treatment both referred in the literature and carried out in our patients. Conclusions: When dealing with balanitis and penile cellulitis, the history should include explicit references to the practice of oral sex. Early medical or surgical treatment has a favourable influence on the evolution of the lesions.

Keywords : Penis; Oral sex; Cellulitis.
