ERYTHROPLASIA OF THE GLANS PENIS (QUEYRAT)

ERYTHROPLASIA OF THE GLANS PENIS (QUEYRAT) Abstract A relatively rare precancerous lesion was described as early as 1893 by Fournier and Darier.1 This lesion occurred on the penis and was given the name, "épithéliome papillaire" or "épithéliome bénin syphiloïde de la verge." At a later date (1911), Queyrat2 described in detail several cases of what was apparently an identical condition. Because of the color and the infiltration, and by comparison with leukoplakia in its tendency to become malignant, Queyrat proposed the name, "érythroplasie du gland." This name has persisted until the present time. A case of erythroplasia was recently reported by Sulzberger and Satenstein,3 in the discussion of which the literature was thoroughly reviewed. Although these authors discovered about forty cases, none were found in the American literature, their case being unique in this respect.

Abstract

Abstract A relatively rare precancerous lesion was described as early as 1893 by Fournier and Darier.1 This lesion occurred on the penis and was given the name, "épithéliome papillaire" or "épithéliome bénin syphiloïde de la verge." At a later date (1911), Queyrat2 described in detail several cases of what was apparently an identical condition. Because of the color and the infiltration, and by comparison with leukoplakia in its tendency to become malignant, Queyrat proposed the name, "érythroplasie du gland." This name has persisted until the present time. A case of erythroplasia was recently reported by Sulzberger and Satenstein,3 in the discussion of which the literature was thoroughly reviewed. Although these authors discovered about forty cases, none were found in the American literature, their case being unique in this respect. Although the original descriptions deal with penile lesions, subsequent cases have appeared in which the lesions occurred on the References 1.
