“As in this case, patients who are bitten on the penis often do not seek immediate medical care, and the disease process often progresses. Progression to skin ulceration and infection is common and requires careful wound care and antibiotic therapy,” said the researchers.

In rare cases, bites can lead to life threatening infectious such ulcers – and potentially lethal gangrene, that require emergent surgical treatment, they added.
