Abstract

Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is a sexually transmitted disease of the lymph channels caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. Esthiomene, a rare late manifestation of LGV, is a primary infection affecting the lymphatics of scrotum, penis, or vulva. The male genitalia are affected less commonly by esthiomene, but we report a male patient who presented with inguinal syndrome, penoscrotal elephantiasis, along with enlargement of femoral lymph nodes.
