OBJECTIVE: Because the efficacy of nonsurgical therapy of Peyronie's disease is controversial, this review analyses the current status of conservative therapy of Peyronie's disease. METHOD: A systematic survey on results of studies published as original papers in peer-reviewed journals is provided. RESULTS: Oral drug therapies include potassium para-aminobenzoate (Potaba), vitamin E, colchicine, tamoxifen, propoleum, acetyl-L-carnitine, and propionyl-L-carnitine. Verapamil, interferon-alpha2a and interferon-alpha2b, collagenase, cortisone, hyaluronidase, and superoxide dismutase are considered intralesional therapies that have had various degrees of success. Other treatments include local gels, iontophoresis, extracorporeal shock wave therapy, and radiation. CONCLUSION: This review analyses the current status of the conservative therapy of Peyronie's disease, because the efficacy of the nonsurgical therapy is controversial.
