Lymphedema of the penis and scrotum is a rare entity characterized by enlargement of the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the genital region due to lymphatic drainage impairment. This clinical condition is more frequent in tropical countries due to a higher incidence of filariasis, which, in turn, is the main etiology. We describe the case of a year-old man with large lymphedema of the scrotum and penis due to an acute and chronic inflammatory process, foreign body granuloma, and marked hyalinization. Four consecutive surgical interventions were necessary to remove the great part of the affected tissue, which enabled satisfactory results and improved the patient's quality of life.

The testicles produce the primary male sex hormone testosterone, as well as sperm. The average size of a man testicle is about 4 x 3 x 2 centimeters cm in size and is oval shaped. Most men have two testicles, also known as testes. Testicles reside in the scrotum, attached at each end to the spermatic cord. Healthy production of testosterone and sperm can occur within a wide range of testicular volume.
Scrotal swelling is an enlargement of the scrotal sac. The scrotal sac, or scrotum, houses the testicles. Scrotal swelling can occur due to injury or an underlying medical condition. It may be caused by a buildup of fluid, inflammation, or an abnormal growth within the scrotum. The swelling may be painless or very painful.
Scrotal swelling is abnormal enlargement of the scrotum. This is the name for the sac surrounding the testicles. Scrotal swelling can occur in males at any age. The swelling can be on one or both sides, and there may be pain. The testicles and penis may or may not be involved.
