Introduction. Hemangioma of the genitourinary system is not common, and accounts for about 2% of cases among all hemangiomas. Its localization on the scrotum and glans penis is the most rare and the incidence of this pathology is less than 1%. The available literature presents various approaches to the treatment of penile hemangioma: drugs that inhibit the growth of blood vessels and narrow existing blood vessels (propranolol), surgical excision, sclerotherapy using a neodymium laser, sclerotherapy using polidocanol are used.

The aim of our work is to report a rare clinical case of hemangioma of the glans penis in a 17-year-old boy and the results of treatment of this pathology.

Clinical case. The article presents a clinical case of treatment of a 17-year-old patient with hemangioma of the glans penis, whose treatment method was sclerotherapy with 2% polidocanol (Ethoxysclerol). A good cosmetic and functional result was obtained using a 3-fold injection of the drug.

Discussion. An analysis of the world literature on the treatment of penile hemangioma showed that at present there is no single approach to the treatment of this pathology and that one of the promising methods is sclerotherapy using various sclerosants.

Conclusions. Sclerotherapy of penile hemangioma using 2% polidocanol (Ethoxysclerol) has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and technically uncomplicated method of treatment and may be the method of choice in the treatment of this pathology in children.
