The Glans Schwannoma: A Rare Clinical Entity

Journal Title: Journal of Medical Research and Surgery - Year 2021, Vol 2, Issue 6

Abstract

Introduction: Schwannoma of the glans is a rare clinical entity. The diagnosis is histological. Treatment is surgical, with complete excision. The authors report this rare case encountered at the University Hospital of Libreville in order to identify its clinical and therapeutic characteristics. Observation: Mr. I.B, 50 years old, with no medical-surgical history, consulted for swelling of the glans evolving for 06 years, preventing coitus. He reported a notion of poor healing from an acorn sore after the trouser fly was closed. The diagnostic suspicion was a glans keloid. A complete resection was performed. Histologic examination favored a glans schwannoma. Healing was effective on D7 postoperatively. Erectile functions have been preserved. Conclusion: The glans schwannoma is rare. Surgical treatment gives good results.
