Introduction: Peyronie’s disease (PD) has significant effect on patients and their partners. We provide a current review of the epidemiology as well as the nonsurgical and surgical treatment of PD.
Materials and methods: Review of literature pertaining to PD with focus on epidemiology and treatment options.
Conclusion: PD is common and likely underreported. The availability of new and highly effective treatment options will catalyze patient awareness and subsequently the prevalence of disease.
