Penile Fibrosis

Penile fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease is a penile disorder that is characterized by fibrosis of the tunica albuginea. It means the sheath that covers the head of the penis is poorly vascularised. This causes the penis to lose some elasticity when getting erections thus causing the penis to bend or curve. The exact cause for penile fibrosis is still unknown. It may be caused due to repeated trauma or microtrauma which affects the erect penis causing lesions in the tunica albuginea area. The intervening reparatory processes of the body cause formation and inflammation of scar. This disorder is a typical sign of Induratio Penis Plastica (IPP) which may become impossible to detect overtime thus allowing the disease to stabilize.
