LAMELAS TESTA, Antonio Armando et al. Clinical Epidemiological Characterization of Peyronie's Disease Patients Infiltrated With Mononuclear Cells. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2022, vol.61, n.2, e1309.  Epub June 20, 2022. ISSN 0034-7493.


Peyronie's disease is rare and involves middle-aged men.


To characterize the clinical and epidemiological aspects of patients with Peyronie's disease infiltrated with mononuclear cells.


An observational, analytical, prospective longitudinal study was carried out at the "Comandante Pinares" General Teaching Hospital from June 2015 to May 2018, with a sample of 159 patients. The variables of age, skin color, etiological factors, curvature and deviation of the penis, as well as symptoms and signs, were controlled.


The largest number of patients corresponded to the age of 50-59 years, white skin, degrees of curvature between 20o and 39o. After treatment, 115 patients were found to have curvature less than 20o and dorsal deviation. The most frequent cause of penile microtrauma is during sexual intercourse or in the flaccid state of the penis (105/159). Diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension, with 59.7 and 30.8%, respectively, are the most frequent etiological factors; the symptoms and signs were pain and curvature, 115 patients presented absence of pain when comparing the mean at the end of the treatment, being significant (p= 0.0000).


Peyronie's disease is frequent in patients of the fifth decade of life, with white skin color. The most frequent cause are microtraumas in sexual activity, diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension as personal pathological antecedents. There is improvement of the symptoms in patients infiltrated with mononuclear cells.
