Resumen

PALERMO, Rider; ROJAS, Eduardo  y  MORALES, Raúl. Giant scrotal lymphedema in a patient with partial falectomy. MEDISAN [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.4, pp.748-757.  Epub 26-Ago-2019. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a patient is described who, 7 years after carrying out a partial falectomy with inguinal superficial lymphadenectomy and chemotherapy (cisplatin 150) due to an squamous cell carcinoma of the penis, he went to the Urology Service of Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba presenting a giant scrotal lymphedema, of lymphatic obstructive origin, with marked repercussion on the biped position and during walking. The surgical procedure (Homans technique with modifications) was carried out and the patient had a satisfactory clinical course. Then after 2 years of surgery, he was discharged from the out-patient service, because it was considered that he had recovered the physical motor skills and his self-esteem.

Palabras clave : lymphedema; scrotum; excision of the lymph node; scrotectomy.
