Four patients with so-called non-venereal sclerosing lymphangitis of the penis are reported. It was suggested that the affected vessels were veins by positively stained factor VIII related antigen with the unlabeled peroxidase-antiperoxidase method. If cord-like linear subcutaneous swelling observed in the coronary sulcus or dorsal region of the penile shaft originate from the vein, it seems correct to call this disease as Mondor´s phlebitis of the penis.
