Peyronie’s Disease

  • W. K. Yeates
Part of the Clinical Practice in Urology book series (PRACTICE UROLOG)


Not only is the pathogenesis of Peyronie’s disease still obscure, but also the clinical features vary with the site of the plaque and the patient’s erection ability. The most frequent site, which is in the dorsal part of the septum, between the corpora cavernosa and their adjacent sheaths, results in dorsal concavity on erection. The deformity may not be symmetrical, resulting also in some lateral deviation. Occasionally, both dorsal and ventral plaques of equal deforming potential are present and balance each other, the plaque being noticed just as a hardness by the patient or by the doctor.
