Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

2 Scopus citations


Conditions that affect the foreskin and glans penis that should be recognized by the emergency medicine practitioner include phimosis, paraphimosis, and inflammatory penile skin conditions, such as balanitis, posthitis, and balanoposthitis. Despite some difficulty in clearly defining phimosis and balanitis/balanoposthitis, paraphimosis remains a true urologic emergency that requires immediate identification and management.
