[en] Abstract: Chronic idiopathic penile edema (CIPE) is an exceptional entity with disabling persistent lymphedema of the
penis, affecting accessorily the scrotum and the pubis. The onset presents with recurrent swelling of the external genitalia,
regressing spontaneously. After 2-3 years the swelling becomes progressively persistent. Mictional and erectile dysfunctions are not uncommon. A thorough work-up including RX, ultrasound examination, CT scanning, MRI imaging, serology and extensive blood testing should be performed to exclude underlying causes, including neoplastic, infectious, vascular and inflammatory diseases. CIPE is associated with significant psychological and functional impact. Surgical correction is the sole therapeutic option. Three patients with CIPE and a review of the literature are presented in order to increase awareness of this rare condition.
