y without medical intervention. The most common plaque forms on the top of the penis causing the penis to arc upward. In severe cases, the penis can be bent at a 90-degree angle during erection. Significant psychological distress has been noted in patients with Peyronie's disease who are sexually active. Frequent patient complaints include increased pain, painful erections, palpable plaque, penile deformity, and erectile dysfunction. Patients with Peyronie's disease have been reported to have an increased likelihood of having Dupuytren's disease, frozen shoulder, plantar fibromatosis, knuckle pads, hypertension and diabetes. Peyronie's disease typically affects males in the range of 40-70 years. The cause of Peyronie's disease is unknown, although some investigators have proposed that it may be due to trauma or an autoimmune component. A number of researchers have suggested that the incidence of Peyronie's disease has increased due to the use of erectile dysfunction drugs.

Auxilium Pharmaceuticals has estimated that there are 210,000 potential candidates in the US and Europe for XIAFLEX treatment on an annual basis.
