Chemical burns to the perineum from podophyllin use
AbstractWe recently managed a 37-year-old man who had made use of podophyllin, prescribed by his general practitioner, to eradicate perianal condylomata. After two applications and removal after the appropriate duration, the patient became frustrated with its apparent inefficacy, and applied a solution by spray over his scrotum and perineum.
