The Newer Sub-lineages Are Even More Aggressive And Are Targeting Penile Tissues Now, Posing Unprecedented Risks for Males!
COVID-19 News: In a shocking discovery, medical experts have discovered a disturbing new complication of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) that has the potential to leave men in agony. Researchers from the School of Medicine at Mazandaran University of Medical Science in Iran and the Yazd Urology Centre have unearthed evidence suggesting that the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) can cause penile ulcers, with newer sub-lineages exhibiting even more aggression in targeting penile tissues.

While COVID-19 is widely recognized as a respiratory tract infection, its impact on the human body is far more profound and multifaceted. As the virus continues to evolve, so too do its symptoms, with some lesser-known manifestations recently coming to light. Genital ulcers, previously unheard of in connection with COVID-19, are now being reported in growing numbers across different countries and regions.
This new documented case study that brought this alarming revelation to the forefront involved a 32-year-old married man who had contracted COVID-19 in May 2023. The man, a non-smoker in good health, sought medical attention after experiencing penile ulcers. His symptoms began as bullae, or fluid-filled blisters, which developed on the second day of his illness, accompanied by unexplained high-grade fever episodes. Subsequently, the bullae ruptured, giving rise to painful and erosive lesions that bled and emitted discharge. The affected areas on the genitalia included the glans of the penis, corona glandis, external orifice, and the dorsal and ventral surfaces of the penis body.
Please note that we were unable to include the pictures of the penile ulcers in our COVID-19 News article as they were simply too disturbing and we suggest that male readers should access the study itself and look at the pictures in order to be aware of the kind of damage SARS-Cov-2 can do to your genitals and sexual organs!
Upon examination, the patient displayed no lower urinary tract symptoms or signs of pain or tenderness in the lesions. Further investigation revealed no recent sexual risk behavior, autoimmune disease history, or specific drug consumption.
To address the ulcers, the patient was prescribed topical medications, including clobetasol propionate ointment and mupirocin 2% ointment, along with regular saline washes. Remarkably, the chosen treatment yielded positive results, with the ulcers healing completely within a two-week period. The patient experienced no recurring ulcers or lingering symptoms thereafter.
Genital ulcers, typically associated with viral infections, autoimmune diseases, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), have long been studied within the medical community. However, the emergence of COVID-19 as a potential cause for these ulcers has left experts astounded. Prior research has established links between viral infections like herpes zoster virus (HZV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and even HIV with the development of genital ulcers.
Now, SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, can be added to this list, according to emerging case studies around the world in the last few months.
In addition to viral infections, autoimmune diseases can also manifest as genital ulcers. Behcet's disease, a chronic and recurrent vasculitis, is a prime example.
This debilitating condition, characterized by various clinical symptoms, can include genital ulcers among its manifestations. Another autoimmune disease, Reiter's syndrome, has been known to cause genital lesions as well.
It is worth noting that while previous studies predominantly focused on adolescent women, the case presented here highlights that men are not exempt from genital manifestations of COVID-19. The significance of this finding cannot be overstated, as it underscores the urgent need for medical professionals to consider SARS-CoV-2 infection as a potential cause for genital ulcers in both genders. However, a conclusive diagnosis can only be reached after ruling out other possible explanations through thorough laboratory testing.
As the world battles the relentless march of COVID-19, the discovery of penile ulcers as a novel complication further emphasizes the virus's impact on multiple body systems. The medical community must remain vigilant in identifying and understanding the ever-evolving symptoms associated with this global health crisis.
The study findings were published in the peer reviewed American Journal of Men’s Health. (Sage Journals)
