RODRIGUEZ COLLAR, Tomás Lázaro; VALDES ESTEVEZ, Basily; LOPEZ MARIN, Laura  and  SORANYER HORROUTINEL SCULL, Roxana. Penile fibroepithelial polyp: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.4, pp.309-312. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objetive: To report a new case of penile fibro-epithelial polyp and its treatment. Methods: A 39 year-old patient who came to the outpatient clinic due to a warted growth he had noticed on the frenulum of prepuce of his penis which was narrowing the urethral meatus and impairing his voiding. Results: Total exeresis of the lesion and circumcision were performed. The histopathologic study revealed a fibroepithelial polyp. The patient is asymptomatic and without any recurrence. Conclusions: The importance of considering this type of lesion in the differential diagnosis of penis tumors is confirmed because its macroscopic aspect seems like a cancerogenic new formation on this organ.

Keywords : Penis tumors; Fibro-epithelial polyp; Treatment.
