Abstract

Introduction: Although heavily investigated over the last decades, Peyronie's disease (PD) pathogenesis remains unclear. Aim: We sought to investigate the association between PD and autoimmune diseases (ADs) in men seeking medical help for sexual dysfunction in the real-life setting. Methods: Complete sociodemographic and clinical data from a homogenous cohort of 1,140 consecutive Caucasian-European men were analyzed. Health-significant comorbidities were scored with the Charlson Comorbidity Index and ADs were stratified according to International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision classification. Main Outcome Measures: Descriptive statistics and multivariate logistic regression models tested the association between ADs and PD. Results: PD was diagnosed in 148 (13%) of the 1,140 men; of PD patients, 14 (9.5%) had a comorbid AD; conversely, the rate of ADs in non-PD patients was significantly lower (χ2=24.7; P
