ABSTRACT

Introduction: Filarial penoscrotal elephantiasis is a chronic lymphangitis with hypertrophy of the external genital organs (EGO) and still exists in countries with endemic filarial diseases.
Case Report: We report a penile-scrotal elephantiasis case in a 20-year-old patient. He consulted for a scrotal mass reaching the knees with low urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to the burial of the penis. Excision followed by a scrotal skin plasty was performed. The aesthetic and the long-term functional results were satisfactory.
Conclusion: The elephantiasis of external genital organs is becoming less and less frequent as a condition and surgery always occupies a place of choice in its management.

Keywords: Elephantiasis, Filariasis, Plasty, Scrotum
