Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To report the case of a patient with long-term giant genital lymphedema as a consequence of partial penectomy with bilateral inguinal lymphadenectomy 26 years before.

METHODS:

58-year-old male patient consulting for genital volume increase (penis and scrotum). Diagnostic tests were performed and surgery was indicated.

RESULTS:

Complete bilateral scrotal excision including testicles and complete amputation of the penile remnant were carried out. Urethra was anastomosed to skin in the root of the scrotum. Post-operative outcome was satisfactory.

CONCLUSIONS:

Genital lymphedema is a disease associated with severe aesthetic and psychological disorders. The present case demonstrates that these patients may be rehabilitated.
