Necrosis of the penis due to cock ring

Actions

This patient suffered necrosis of the penis after having worn a cock ring for 5 days.


First ischemia leads to paleness of the affected organ or body part, then, if the lack of oxygen is prolonged, ischemia leads to pain and eventually necrosis.

Necrosis refers to the microscopic or macroscopic destruction (disintegration) of tissue in a living organism. Pathologists use the term "necrosis" for the secondary effects of a massive cell death, ie the tissue destruction. This destruction is mostly caused by ischemia.

The microscopic necrosis manifested by the disintegration of cell organelles. Accumulation of acid waste products leads to the denaturation and precipitation of proteins in the cytoplasm. Together with the defective cell organelles they form clod-like structures. The cell nuclei shrink and disintegrate, leading to karyorrhexis and eventually karyolysis.
