ABSTRACT The medicine Lipostabil N has been in widespread use in Europe since 2002 by doctors working in the field of esthetics to achieve a reduction in the volume of smaller fat deposits by means of injections into the subcutaneous fatty tissue. The lipases released from the adipocytes by means of phosphatidylcholine produce a local breakdown of fat that is then discharged over the liver and metabolized via beta-oxidation. The medicine has been authorized for intravenous use in the prophylaxis and therapy of fat embolisms and liver diseases.

    ABSTRACT: SUMMARY Primary presentation of classic Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) on penis is extremely infrequent; with only 51 cases reported so far. We report two patients with the histopathologic diagnosis of KS. The first was a 59 year old male patient with a 6x7mm nodule, tender to palpation, wine-red colored, on the ventral surface of the glans. He died few months later with diagnosis of lymphoma. The second was a 64 year old male patient with nodular lesions on the left lower extremity and red-violaceus macules on the body of the penis and the coronal sulcus. He had negative serology for HIV. In conclusion, classic KS with primary presentation on penis is an uncommon pathology, but should be considered when treating unspecific lesions on penis.
