Le cancer de la verge : à propos d’un cas et revue de la littérature

Cancer of the penis: case report and literature review

Résumé

Le cancer de la verge est rare. Il pose souvent en Afrique le problème de l’acceptabilité de l’amputation de la verge. Nous rapportons un cas de tumeur de la verge révélé après une circoncision tardive. Le traitement a consisté en une amputation des deux tiers de la verge. Le patient est vivant sans récidive locale, deux ans après la chirurgie. La revue de la littérature montre la rareté de cette tumeur et le rôle des facteurs favorisants qui sont: l’absence de circoncision et l’infection à papillomavirus.

Abstract

Cancer of the penis is rare. It often raises the issue of acceptability of the amputation of penis. We report a case of cancer of the penis following a late circumcision. The treatment consisted of amputation of two-thirds of the penis. The patient is alive without any local recurrence 2 years after surgery. Literature review suggests that this type of cancer is very rare. The factors associated with such cancer include lack of circumcision and infection with human papilloma virus.
