[Risk of Infection Following Implant of Artificial Penile Nodule, Bouglous or Dominos: A Case Report in French Guiana].

Abstract : Implant of artificial penile nodule (APN) is a socio-cultural practice, linked to penitentiary environment in French Guiana. Physicians are often unfamiliar with its existence. Although serious complications remain low regarding the high prevalence of this practice, urgent cares could be required. Indeed, implant of nodule can have functional sequelae, and sometimes life-threatening consequences, especially if infection occurs and spreads. We have reported the case of a 23-year-old male who presented an infection of the penis after the implant of two APN. Removal of the nodules associated with oral antibiotics was needed. We also present CT-scan images of another patient, as an example of fortuitous discovery of these nodules. We finally discuss the various complications already described in literature.
