INTRODUCTION: Histological examination of a biopsy of a lesion of the glans penis revealed blood capillaries within the malpighian epithelium.CASE REPORT: A 66 year-old man exhibited two circumscribed red plaques of the glans penis following posthectomy. Their histological examination revealed blood capillaries within the epithelium without basal membrane and pericytes between the endothelial cells and keratinocytes. Further evolution was towards lichen planus of the genital mucous membranes. In spite of a verrucous carcinoma which had been surgically removed, the evolution within a follow-up time of 6 years was favorable.DISCUSSION: Blood capillaries ascending in the epithelium of the genital mucous membranes have been observed in a special variant of Zoon's balanitis, the lichenoid, telangiectatic and purpuric balanitis described by Jonquieres in 1971. In our patient exhibiting a lichen planus of the glans penis, the occurrence of blood vessels in the malpighian layer of the epithelium may be interpreted as the consequence of an unusual epithelial and vascular regeneration of an erosive lichenoid lesion. It may also be interpreted as an original neoplasia, and could therefore be considered as a genital intraepithelial capillary hemangioma.

OBJECTIVE: To describe an additional case of desmoid tumor of the penis. The incidence, etiopathogenesis, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of this condition are discussed. METHODS: A 70-year-old male consulted at the emergency services for pain and urinary symptoms. Physical examination showed no regional lymphadenopathy. Patient assessment by ultrasound and CT disclosed a penile lesion. Treatment was by wide local excision. RESULTS: Control evaluation at 3, 6 and 12 months showed normal findings and the patient remains asymptomatic. CONCLUSIONS: Wide local excision is advocated as the treatment of choice for desmoid tumor of the penis.

Metastatic disease of colon and rectal carcinoma accounts for a high proportion of cancer related deaths. The common organs involved in metastatic diseases include liver, lung, brain and bone. Although, theoretically possible, metastasis to the other organs are rare. We report the first case of carcinoma of the rectum with a solitary metastasis to the glans penis.

We report two cases of priapism with metastases to the penis. The first case was a 52-year old man, diagnosed as suffering from gastric cancer by endoscopic biopsy five years previously, but for whom no treatment was performed. He visited our office due to priapism with a duration of 11 days. Physical examination showed two palpable mass lesions on the glans. A glansocavernosum shunt (Winter shunt) was performed, but this was not effective. Radiotherapy was also ineffective. Pathological analysis revealed gastric cancer metastasis to the penis and this was diagnosed as the cause of the priapism. He died of respiratory failure on postoperation day 28. The second case was a 64-year old man with kidney cancer. Hemodialysis had been performed due to chronic renal failure for 20 years and visited our office due to priapism from which he had suffered for 30 days. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a left renal cell cancer and metastasized to the retroperitoneal lymph nodes. A Winter shunt was performed on the penis and then a cavernosospongiosum anastomosis was done. The priapism improved about 40%. Pathological analysis confirmed that the renal cell cancer had metastasized to the penis and this was concluded to be responsible for the priapism.

BACKGROUND: Tumor-associated tissue eosinophilia (TATE) occurs in many kinds of cancer. This study analyzed whether TATE improves the survival of penile cancer patients. METHODS: In 17 patients with penile cancer, survival was compared between the TATE-positive group and the TATE-negative group. Tissue eosinophils were observed by transmission electron microscopy. RESULTS: In all cases, 5-year survival was 72.9% in the TATE-positive group (n = 8) and 38.9% in the TATE-negative group (n = 9; P = 0.131). In stage III and IV, it was 60% in the TATE-positive group (n = 5) and 0% in the TATE-negative group (n = 5; P = 0.058). Transmission electron microscopy images revealed the vigorous infiltration of tissue eosinophils. CONCLUSIONS: It is suggested that TATE improves the survival of patients with advanced penile cancer. However, a greater number of subjects is needed to prove statistical significance.

OBJECTIVE: To present a rare site of schwannoma and review the literature. METHODS/RESULTS: A case of a young male patient who consulted for removal of a penile lipoma is presented. The small, regular, well-circumscribed tumor localized under Buck's fascia on the dorsal penile aspect was excised. The anatomopathological analysis showed a schwannoma. CONCLUSION: A review of the literature showed schwannoma of the penis to be very uncommon. For this reason, we were prompted to report this case.

We report one case of cavernous hemangioma of penis shaft appeared in a 35 years old man like a painful mass. The blood analysis and radiologics examinations hadn't any important contribution to the diagnostic that, finally, was confirmed during the surgical extirpation and the posterior histological study. We make a brief description about the mentioned pathology.
