1/35. Primary tuberculosis of the penis.

    We present a case of primary tuberculosis of the inner lining of the prepuce in a 63-year-old man. The condition resembled carcinoma. The diagnosis was based on histopathology and on M. tuberculosis culture. Successful treatment was by a combined medical and surgical approach. The rarity of the case is emphasized.

2/35. Medical decision making for melanoma of the glans penis.

    This case report describes a rare presentation of penile melanoma in which 3 successive primaries arose and were operated from an area of melanosis on the glans penis and prepuce. One of the major factors accounting for the poor prognosis of this patient was the long delay in presentation. This was largely due to the patient's reluctance because of the site of the disease. When diffuse melanotic areas are present in the genital region, in particular given the reluctance of patients with skin lesions in this region to present, the index of suspicion should be high with respect to the risk of transformation and an aggressive follow-up policy should be advocated. Treatment guidelines should not significantly differ from the usual approach of cutaneous melanoma.

3/35. Warty (condylomatous) squamous cell carcinoma of the penis: a report of 11 cases and proposed classification of 'verruciform' penile tumors.

    Within the spectrum of penile squamous cell carcinomas, those that we descriptively refer to collectively as the "verruciform" lesions are particularly difficult to subclassify. In a review of 50 such tumors, we found 11 distinctive neoplasms with condylomatous features conforming to the appearance of so-called "warty (condylomatous) carcinoma." The average patient age was 55 years and the average duration of disease was 19 months. The primary tumor involved multiple anatomic sites (glans, coronal sulcus, and foreskin) in seven cases and a single site (glans or foreskin) in four cases. Grossly, white to gray cauliflower-like tumors typically measuring approximately 5 cm were noted. Histologically the tumors were mainly papillomatous with acanthosis and hyperkeratosis. The papillae had prominent fibrovascular cores. The most conspicuous microscopic findings were striking nuclear atypia of koilocytotic type and clear cytoplasm. The interface between tumor and stroma was irregular in the majority of cases; deep invasion of corpus cavernosum was noted in five cases. The differential diagnosis included verrucous carcinoma, low-grade papillary squamous cell carcinoma, not otherwise specified, and giant condyloma acuminatum. Among other differences, the first two lesions show no koilocytotic changes and the last lacks malignant features and irregular stromal invasion. Metastatic spread occurred in two patients; both are alive with evidence of recurrent disease 12 and 72 months after initial diagnosis. A third patient was alive with recurrent disease 12 months after diagnosis. Five patients were free of disease 8, 12, 24, 52, and 108 months after diagnosis. Three patients were lost to follow up. Warty (condylomatous) carcinomas of the penis are morphologically distinctive verruciform neoplasms with features of human papillomavirus-related lesions and should be distinguished from other verruciform tumors so that differences in behavior, if any, between these tumors will become established.

4/35. Penile hybrid verrucous-squamous carcinoma associated with a superficial inguinal lymph node metastasis.

    A 62-year-old Japanese man who presented with penile carcinoma is reported. The initial exophytic neoplasm excised from the coronal sulcus and prepuce on the abdominal side of the penis was diagnosed histologically as verrucous carcinoma. Twenty-six months after the primary operation, an epithelial neoplasm recurred within the scar of the primary operation. The neoplasm histologically showed verrucous carcinoma and multiple invasive foci of conventional squamous cell carcinoma in the advancing edge of the tumor, as such representing a hybrid verrucous-squamous carcinoma. A lymph node metastasis in the left superficial inguinal lymph node occurred 4 months after the second operation. A total bilateral inguinal lymphadenectomy was performed and revealed no other lymph node metastases. The patient is alive without local recurrence or evidence of metastases in pelvic lymph nodes or visceral organs 2 years after the resection of the hybrid verrucous-squamous carcinoma. The initial verrucous carcinoma, recurrent hybrid verrucous-squamous carcinoma, and metastatic lymph node were negative for human papillomavirus dna type 6, 11, 16, 18, and 33 sequences by dot blot hybridization of polymerase chain reaction products. The characteristics of hybrid verrucous-squamous carcinoma and importance of lymph node metastasis in penile carcinoma are discussed.

5/35. Squamous cell carcinoma in long-standing untreated lichen sclerosus et atrophicus of the penis.

    lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is an uncommon disease of skin and genital mucosa in both sexes. Involvement of the male genital mucosa is usually complicated by recurrent balanoposthitis, ulceration, phimosis, and meatal stenosis. The development of a squamous cell carcinoma is extremely rare in genital lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in males as compared with females. We report a 70-year-old male with a squamous cell carcinoma of the glans superimposed on long-standing lichen sclerosus et atrophicus of glans and prepuce. The patient in addition had a basal cell carcinoma on his face. awareness of this rare complication of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in males is emphasized.

6/35. A case of lichen planus of the penis mimicking leukoplakia lesions: a review of differential diagnosis.

    We describe a case of a 50-year-old man with lesions localized in the region of urethral meatus and on the epithelium of the foreskin. The lesions were observed as the white spots with flat or somewhat depressed surface, locally similar to leukoplakia, lichen sclerosus atrophicus or cicatrix, without any subjective symptoms. cystoscopy, micturition urography and biopsy were performed by urologist. The diagnosis of lichen planus Wilsoni was made based on the biopsy examination. We obtained great improvement of lesions through the applied local therapy

7/35. MALT lymphoma of the foreskin.

    Here we present the first described case of MALT lymphoma involving the foreskin. The patient presented with a lump proximal to the glans penis. It was treated with radical excision and histology revealed positive margins. No further therapy was given as this may have resulted in significant morbidity. The patient remains relapse free more than 2 years later. MALT lymphomas are the third most common non-Hodgkin lymphoma accounting for 8% of cases. They have been described at almost all extranodal sites but this case is the first involving the foreskin.

8/35. Bowenoid papulosis at the site of prior herpes progenitalis.

    A 35-year-old dentist came to the authors' attention for papular and vegetating lesions that had appeared on his penile shaft over the last 2 months. The lesions differed in their features: pink and vegetating on the left side, brown and papular on the right side (Figure 1). The obvious clinical diagnoses of genital warts on the left and Bowenoid papulosis on the right were confirmed by punch biopsies, which showed epithelial hyperplasia with diffuse cell vacuolization (koilocytes)in the left biopsy and moderate nuclear dysplasia in the right one (Figure 2). Human papillomavirus phenotyping was not performed. Interestingly, the patient reported a clear medical history of herpes progenital is (only one episode) that had involved the right side of his glans and prepuce 4 years ago. An immunomodulating treatment with imiquimod was started in the attempt to cure both the genital warts and Bowenoid papulosis lesions (imiquimod was applied three times a week for 8 weeks). At the end of the treatment, the genital warts had disappeared, whereas many Bowenoid papulosis lesions were still present on the right side of the penis (Figure 3). Treated with liquid nitrogen as well, the Bowenoid papulosis lesions disappeared.

9/35. Squamous cell carcinoma and lichen sclerosus et atrophicus of the prepuce.

    Two cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the prepuce arising on balanitis xerotica obliterans are described. This event is unusual and not well known. The surgical treatment was a wide circumcision in which the prepuce and part of the shaft skin were removed, performing as well a decortication of the glans base. This technique seemed to be satisfactory in removing the carcinoma and obtaining a definite improvement in the clinical picture of balanitis xerotica obliterans as well.

10/35. A salvage surgical solution for recurrent lymphangioma of the prepuce.

    Treatment of lymphangioma circumscriptum of the prepuce is often technically demanding. Many different medical and surgical approaches have been described over the years, none of which has proved completely successful. We describe a case in which skin deficiency was a problem after prior multiple excisions of lymphangiomatous tissue. We decided to bury the degloved shaft in the scrotum. After 6 months the penis was raised and reconstructed using scrotal skin; this achieved satisfactory skin coverage. In such cases piliferous follicles can easily be dealt with at a later stage by cosmetic treatment. We believe this technical approach may be a valid alternative to conventional procedures (i.e. grafts and flaps) especially when extensive resection makes skin coverage particularly difficult.
