Petechia of the Penis: Sexual Habits or Adverse Drug Reaction?

Petechia of the Penis: Sexual Habits or Adverse Drug Reaction? To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of recurring small red macules (petechia), exclusively localized on the gland secondary to fellatio in an adult man, who is on therapy with acetylsalicylic acid. No previous studies have been ever conducted on the possible onset of penis petechia after oral sex. Petechia are nonspecific cutaneous lesions appearing as circumscribed sub-epithelial hemorrhages, or appearing as small dark red or purplish spots as a result of capillaries rupture. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Urology Karger

Abstract

To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of recurring small red macules (petechia), exclusively localized on the gland secondary to fellatio in an adult man, who is on therapy with acetylsalicylic acid. No previous studies have been ever conducted on the possible onset of penis petechia after oral sex. Petechia are nonspecific cutaneous lesions appearing as circumscribed sub-epithelial hemorrhages, or appearing as small dark red or purplish spots as a result of capillaries rupture.
