Paraphimosis: current treatment options. (1/6)

Paraphimosis is a urologic emergency, occurring in uncircumcised males, in which the foreskin becomes trapped behind the corona and forms a tight band of constricting tissue. Often iatrogenically induced, paraphimosis can be prevented by returning the prepuce to cover the glans following penile manipulation. Treatment often begins with reduction of edema, followed by a variety of options, including mechanical compression, pharmacologic therapy, puncture technique and dorsal slit. Prevention and early intervention are key elements in the management of paraphimosis.  (+info)

Case report. Paraphimosis due to erotic dancing. (2/6)

Paraphimosis usually develops when a tight foreskin is retracted over the glans penis for a prolonged period. Many esoteric aetiologies have been implicated in the development of paraphimosis including piercing the foreskin, Plasmodium falciparum infection, application of celadine juice to the foreskin, chancroid, pessaries and the implantation of pearls. We report the first two cases of paraphimosis developing during wining, an erotic dance native to Trinidad & Tobago.  (+info)

Modified puncture technique for reduction of paraphymosis. (3/6)

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 45 patients underwent reduction of paraphymosis at LN Hospital, Delhi, India and Leighton Hospital, Crewe, UK from August 1991 to September 1999 using the multiple puncture and glans squeeze technique. These were divided into 3 grades: grade 1, paraphymosis without engorgement of glans; grade 2, paraphymosis with engorgement of glans; and grade 3, paraphymosis with associated skin changes (non-pitting oedema, cheese-cutting of the shaft of the penis or erosions). RESULTS: Grade 1 (6) patients were reduced by simply pulling the foreskin back into the normal position. Grade 2 (37) patients were reduced by the above-mentioned technique. Grade 3 (2) patients could not be reduced by this technique and the band had to be divided. CONCLUSIONS: Difficult paraphymosis with gross engorgement of the glans can be successfully reduced by this technique as long as the skin changes are not marked.  (+info)

Best evidence topic reports. Ice, pins, or sugar to reduce paraphimosis. (4/6)

A short cut review was carried out to establish which of the ice glove technique, the multiple puncture technique, or the application of sugar was the best approach for paraphimosis reduction. Thirty three papers were found using the reported search, of which three presented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results and study weaknesses of these best papers are tabulated. A clinical bottom line is stated.  (+info)

Prepuce: phimosis, paraphimosis, and circumcision. (5/6)


Primary cutaneous CD30+ T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder presenting as paraphimosis: a case report and review of the literature. (6/6)

Primary cutaneous CD30+ T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (PC-CD30+ LPD) as a group are one of the more common types of T-cell lymphoma. More specifically primary cutaneous anaplastic lymphoma (PC-ALCL), one of these lymphoproliferative disorders, is the second most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. We report an unusual presentation of PC-ALCL. A 90-year-old, uncircumcised male presented with a 3-week history of painful penile swelling and discharge. The patient was treated with cephalexin and underwent emergent circumcision for paraphimosis. The diagnosis of ALCL was made on microscopic evaluation of the foreskin along with follow-up staging studies. A literature review revealed 31 previously reported cases of penile lymphoma, one of which reported a primary penile CD30+ T-cell lymphoma similar to ours. Only one case report described a lymphoma presenting as paraphimosis. Our case is the second reported case of PC-ALCL of the penis and the first of its kind to present as paraphimosis. Lymphomas must be included in the differential diagnosis of penile lesions and paraphimosis. When present, clinicians should be able to differentiate primary cutaneous lymphoma from lymphomas with secondary skin involvement. All foreskins should be submitted to pathology for proper evaluation of penile lesions.  (+info)
