nonvenereal sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis aka coronal sulcus lymphangitis aka Mondor's disease of the penis

Mondor's disease of the penis, also know as nonvenereal sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis and coronal sulcus lymphangitis appears as a firm cord circumferential or nearly so just proximal to the balanic sulcus. It has been reported to occur after or associated with syphilis, prolonged sexual intercourse, surgical trauma (inguinal hernia surgery), trauma during sports, herpes genitalis [BJD 1977;96;679], gonorrheal urethritis, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale, sporotrichosis, or candida [JAAD 1992;26;700].


A cord-like serpiginous induration, running along the coronal sulcus of the penis is typical.


The condition usually resolves within one year. Workup for any sexually transmitted diseases is mandatory.
