IntroductionTop of Form

Patients presenting with circumscribed or diffuse penile induration are commonly encountered in daily practice. The majority have Peyronie disease. However, a differential diagnosis that includes several benign and malignant entities must be carried out. These painful penile conditions include Peyronie disease (Psora/ Sycosis), inflammation (Psora), trauma (Causa occasionalis), dorsal vein thrombosis (Psora/ Sycosis), corporal thrombosis (Psora/ Sycosis), calciphylaxis (Psora/ Sycosis), priapism (Psora), primary tumors (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis), and secondary tumors (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis).


The penis is the male sex as well as excretory organ. It has following parts-


 It is head of the penis and covered with pink, moist tissue called mucosa. Covering the glans is the foreskin or prepuce. In circumcised men, the foreskin is surgically removed and the mucosa on the glans transforms into dry skin.

Corpus cavernosum

These are two columns of tissue running along the sides of the penis. Blood fills this tissue to cause an erection.

Corpus spongiosum

It is a column of sponge-like tissue running along the front of the penis and ending at the glans penis. It fills with blood during an erection, keeping the urethra open.


The urethra runs through the corpus spongiosum, conducting urine out of the body.

Peyronie Disease

Peyronie disease is the most frequent cause of painful penile induration. This pathologic condition is characterized by formation of fibrous tissue plaques within the tunica albuginea (Psora/ Sycosis), causing deformity and shortening of the penis (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis). Diagnosis is based on the medical history, autophotography, and a clinical examination with plaque  palpation. Its main cause is an incidental or sexual trauma (Causa occasionalis).

Painful induration is a common manifestation of penile inflammation. These include-

  • Cavernous tissue ischemia- especially in diabetics (Psora/ Syphilis)
  • Penile infections, frequent after surgical drills or prosthesis implantation (Causa occasionalis)
  • Spongiositis, after improper catheterization and endoscopic manipulation of the urethra (Causa occasionalis)
  • Penile cellulitis (Psora/ Sycosis)
  • Balanitis (Psora/ Sycosis)
  • Penile abscesses and infection of the corpora cavernosa can be life-threatening (Psora/ Syphilis)
  • Acute purulent cavernositis often requires penile amputation (Psora/ Syphilis)
  • Severe fibrotic cavernosal changes usually develop, producing irreversible erectile dysfunction (Psora/ Sycosis)

Patients with penile injury usually present with painful swelling and deformity of the shaft, either diffuse or circumscribed or with penile fracture. Urethral rupture is also not uncommon. (Causa occasionalis)

Dorsal Vein Thrombosis

Patients with dorsal vein thrombosis present with a rod-like painful induration in the dorsal aspect of the penile shaft. Thrombosis can be associated with thrombophilia (Psora/ Syphilis) but may also be idiopathic or follow inflammation (Psora), trauma (Causa occasionalis) , and vigorous intercourse (Causa occasionalis).

Corporal Thrombosis

Persistent pain and induration of the proximal portion of the penile shaft may result from partial segmental thrombosis (Psora/ Sycosis) of a corpus cavernosum. This is rare and may be idiopathic or follow traumatic events such as vigorous intercourse and extensive bicycle riding (Causa occasionalis).

Penile calciphylaxis presents with severe penile pain, unresponsive to narcotics and associated with diffuse penile induration (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis). This rare, life-threatening disorder is characterized by progressive vascular calcification and ischemic tissue loss in patients with end-stage renal disease. The disease progresses to superinfection and wet gangrene (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis). Penectomy is usually necessary.

Priapism is an involuntary, prolonged erection unrelated to sexual stimulation and unrelieved by ejaculation (Psora). It may be of two types-

Low-flow priapism

This condition is generally painful, although the pain may disappear with prolonged priapism. It shows-

  • Rigid erection (Psora)
  • Ischemic corpora (Psora/ Syphilis)
  • No evidence of trauma

High-flow priapism

It is generally not painful and may manifest in an episodic manner. It shows-

  • Adequate arterial flow
  • Well-oxygenated corpora
  • Evidence of trauma- blunt or penetrating injury to the penis or perineum (straddle injury) (Causa occasionalis)

Primary Tumors

Induration or a warty exophytic growth is a common manifestation of a primary penile tumor (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis). Pain may be present in cases of tumor inflammation. The tumors of the anterior urethra may manifest in the same way.

Secondary Tumors

Metastatic invasion of the corpora cavernosa by a malignant neoplasm (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis)can manifest as painful penile induration, either circumscribed or diffuse. The prognosis of patients with penile metastases is poor.
