2 Status of the Current Knowledge Peyronie’s disease is a connective tissue disorder of the tunica albuginea. This phenomenon is characterized by changes in the collagen and elastin metabolism and composition of the tunica albuginea [2]. The underlying physiopathological mechanism is still is poorly understood. However, it is well known that PD is an inflammatory process of the tunica albuginea characterized by an increase in and disorganization of collagen fibers, persistent fibrin deposition within the tissue, and elastin fragmentation [3].

The evaluation of patients at follow-up was carried out with the following simple assessments: palpation of the penile nodule, presence of pain and the presence of the curvature. The same authors (1970), in another study, reported that none of the 21 patients with untreated PD experienced a worsening of their condition [50]. Obviously, it must be considered that in 1968 the penile colour Doppler ultrasound study was not available. 7 %)) and worsened (4 cases (21 %)) [51].

The TGF-β1 injection is able to induce chronic inflammation and fibrosis in the tunica tissue over time. It is due to its ability to induce its own production that it may be the key to the development of the scarring and fibrosis into chronic, progressive condition [9]. Moreover, El-Sakka demonstrated that the PD-like plaque induced by the TGF-β1 injection was reduced by colchicine, a collagenase and myofibroblasts inhibitor drug [10].
