Disorders of the Male Reproductive System


Roscoe N. Gray, M.D.;Louise J. Gordy, M.D.

Chapter Summary


This chapter from Attorneys' Textbook of Medicine covers disorders of the male reproductive system.

The chapter first explains the anatomy and physiology of the male reproductive system. It then examines disorders of the penis and urethra, covering congenital anomalies, priapism, Peyronie's disease, phimosis and paraphimosis, urethral stricture, urethral condylomata acuminata, sexually transmitted diseases, penile and urethral tumors, and injuries to the penis and urethra. The chapter goes on to discuss disorders of the testis, scrotum, and spermatic cord, including congenital anomalies of the testis, disorders of the scrotum, disorders of the spermatic cord, testicular and scrotal tumors, tumors of the epididymis and spermatic cord, and injuries. The discussion then turns to prostate disorders, covering prostatitis and injury. The chapter thoroughly discusses erectile dysfunction, or impotence. It examines the American Medical Association evaluation of permanent impairment resulting from male reproductive system disorders. Finally, the chapter provides a checklist for attorneys and a bibliography for further reading.

Attorneys' Textbook of Medicine (Matthew Bender) is the most comprehensive and authoritative medical reference for attorneys, essential for trying a personal injury, medical malpractice, or workers' compensation case. It contains detailed information on hundreds of injuries and diseases, complete with descriptions of the accident, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, extent of disability, monetary award, and medical-legal annotations. This valuable tool puts the attorney in complete command of the examination and cross-examination of medical experts and enables communication to the jurors in lay terms that they can clearly understand. In addition, it explains the American Medical Association standards for testing and evaluating permanent physical impairment.
