Featured Story from Urology Newsletter
Jon L. Pryor, MD, MBA
The startling symptom of penile curvature, often accompanied by a penile mass and pain, are the hallmarks of Peyronie’s disease. Though originally described by Francois Gigot de la Peyronie in 1743, there has been little advancement in understanding the cause and, likewise, few evidence-based treatments for this frustrating problem. However, The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Urology is participating in a trial for treating Peyronie’s disease, so help may be on the way.
Most men and many physicians don’t know anything about Peyronie’s disease; yet, it is a fairly common problem. Men can have Peyronie’s in their 30’s, but there is an age- related increase with an overall prevalence of around 3 percent. An autopsy study suggested Peyronie’s may have a prevalence of 22 percent, which illustrates that this disease is under-reported — most likely because of embarrassment of the patient and/or physicians not knowing much about Peyronie’s.
