Authors summarise the two-decade experience of their department in severe tissue necrosis of penis and scrotum. Presented cases represent a shared field of urology with dermatology, infectology, nephrology and andrology. Tissue necrosis extended to different depth of the penis, from superficial skin and subcutaneous tissues, fascias to the entire organ. Underlying diseases are acute and chronic inflammations, metabolic diseases, vascular lesions. Diagnostic difficulties and therapeutic choices, both conservative and operative, are discussed.
