The recent Phase II VinCap trial (NCT02057913) shows promising results for vinflunine as a chemotherapy for locally-advanced and metastatic carcinoma of the penis. At the Genitourinary Cancers Symposi... Author: VJOncology Added: 06/08/2018

In this study, we investigated the utility of routine FSA of the SMs in men undergoing penectomy. A retrospective review identified consecutive patients who underwent partial (n = 26) or total (n = 12) penectomy for penile squamous cell carcinoma at our institution from 2004 to 2015. FSA of the SMs was performed in 21 (80.8%) partial and 10 (83.3%) total penectomies. FSAs were reported as positive (n = 3, 9.7%), atypical (n = 3, 9.7%), and negative (n = 25, 80.6%). All of the positive or negative FSA diagnoses were confirmed accurate on the frozen sectio...
Publication date: Available online 27 May 2018 Source:European Urology Supplements Author(s): Oliver W. Hakenberg, Desiree Dräger, Andreas Erbersdobler In the treatment of penile cancer, there is a need for prognostic and predictive factors allowing assessment of the likelihood of lymph node metastasis, as this would greatly facilitate clinical decision-making for invasive staging of inguinal nodes. Furthermore, systemic chemotherapy in metastatic disease has limited efficacy and more effective additional or second-line therapies are needed. There is a great interest in personalised and targeted therapies at present,...
Conclusions: Incidental findings are often not dictated in reports. In some instances, the incidental genitourinary findings changed the course of therapy. For example, focal uptake noted on the foreskin was determined to be squamous cell carcinoma. Focal uptake in the vagina was determined to be melanoma. This exhibit will identify findings that should be reported to ensure adequate treatment.
ConclusionsUntil now there has not been sufficient evidence regarding the role of robotics in groin lymph node dissection, though this approach appears to be safe and oncologically effective, with morbidity rates relatively lower compared to open surgery.
Genital lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is an uncommon genital dermatosis. Its resemblance to vitiligo especially during the earlier stages leads to delay in its diagnosis. Apart from the common complications such as meatal stenosis, balanoposthitis, phimosis and painful erections, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a rare but ominous complication of genital LSA. Herein, we present a case of long standing penile LSA complicated by SCC stressing upon the requirement of early diagnosis and management of LSA.
We present the case of a 55-year-old patient with a pathologic history of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis followed by radical penectomy. Due to metastasis to the locoregional lymph nodes, the entire affected area was subsequently treated with radiation therapy, receiving a total dose of 55.8 Gray. Eight years after this treatment, translucent vesicles filled with a clear liquid appeared on the scrotum. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of LC and therapy with CO2 laser was applied, resulting in a favorable outcome. LC of the scrotum may present a long-term radiotherapy-induced complication of this site. Our clinic...
