Similar to the female genital system, the male genitalia can be injured by drugs or during diagnostic and/or therapeutic interventions. The drug-induced lesions of the male genitalia that are analyzed in this chapter include contact dermatitis, fixed drug eruptions, scrotal blisters and other specific lesions, such as red scrotum syndrome and scrotum hemangioma. Iatrogenic functional disorders are also presented in detail. The final section of this chapter is dedicated to surgical-related lesions of the male genitalia.
