ABSTRACT


Sclerosing lipogranuloma is a rare benign disease, representing a peculiar granulomatous reaction of fatty tissue. The majority of cases are secondary to injection of exogenous foreign bodies, such as silicone, paraffin, mineral, or vegetable oils. To the best of our knowledge, we present the first case of a silicone‑induced penile lipogranuloma in a 52‑year‑old man evaluated with a multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol, including diffusion‑weighted imaging, magnetization transfer imaging, and dynamic contrast‑enhanced MRI. MRI of the penis by combining both conventional and functional information represents an important imaging tool in the preoperative workup of silicone‑induced penile lipogranuloma.
Keywords: Diffusion‑weighted magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, penis, sclerosing lipogranuloma, silicone
