Peyronie's disease is a benign disease of unknown etiology. The objective of this study was to evaluate factors associated to Peyronie's disease in patients submitted to the Nesbit surgical procedure. Patients and We conducted a retrospective study in 67 patients through a descriptive analysis of patients submitted to the Nesbit surgical procedure in Hospital de Base in Sao Jose do Rio Preto. Results: The main factors associated with Peyronie's disease found in this study were smoking (46.2%), hypertension (41.7%) and excessive alcohol consumption (25.3%). Most patients took some type of medication daily, in particular antihypertensive drugs. Significant associations were found with smoking, hypertension and alcohol abuse.
