MOLINA ESCUDERO, Roberto et al. Mondor’s síndrome: Case review and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.4, pp.317-319. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We review the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of Mondor's disease of the penis, with the contribution of a new clinical case. Methods: A 43-year-old male reported to the emergency room with preputial inflammation and edema associated to swelling of the dorsal region of the penis for the previous three weeks. Results: Doppler ultrasound revealed thrombosis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis, associated to candidiasic balanitis. Treatment was provided in the form of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and antibiotic and antifungal agents. The symptoms disappeared after 7 days of treatment, followed by the development of punctate phimosis that required circumcision. Conclusions: Mondor's syndrome is an infrequent condition usually caused by trauma, though it is important to consider the possibility of associated coagulation problems, infections and neoplastic processes. Doppler ultrasound is the technique of choice for confirming the diagnosis and resolution of the condition. Treatment is based on nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medication, antibiotherapy and sexual abstinence. The use of anti-coagulation is controversial, but may prove useful in patients with coagulation disorders.

Palabras clave : Mondor's syndrome; Venous thrombosis; Anticoagulation.
