Heading


ID#:6762
Description:This patient presented with a condition termed “paraphimosis”, which is a retraction of the foreskin proximal to the glans penis, where it becomes immobilized due to its contraction.
In this case, the paraphimosis was brought on by a syphilitic chancre located on the prepuce during primary syphilis. This patient’s prolonged paraphimosis displayed signs of swelling of the prepuce, which causes pain, and impaired blood flow due to strangulation of the distal penis.
