Background: Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin cannot be portrayed on the glans. It is a physiological and common condition in the pediatric age. The pathological form derives from an inflammatory or traumatic lesion. Circumcision is the most common surgical treatment of phimosis but it is a controversial practice, especially in occidental world. Methods: We enrolled 61 patients with pathological phimosis (22/balanoposthitis, 18/painful erection, 21/ urinary discomfort) between 2015-2017. Results: All patients underwent preputialplasty. Conclusions: Various alternatives to circumcision have been described, as manual retraction therapy, topical steroid therapy, and many types of preputialplasty. We report our technique.
