    • MANAGEMENT OF PHIMOSIS WITH USE OF BETAMETHASONE AND PREPUCIAL DILATATION –A PROSPECTIVE STUDY

      Dr. Anoop Kumar Singh:


      Physiological phimosis affects 96% of newborns and its incidence
      diminishes with age. At 3 years old, 10% of boys present phimosis and
      by the age of 14 years, this incidence decreases to 1% (13).
      (1). In our study, we did not observe any adverse effects in our patients.
      We obtained a success rate of 92% from the treatment with 0.05%
      betamethasone ointment and dilatation, which is similar to what has
      been found in recent studies in the literature (1,2,13,15-19).

      If routine medical circumcision didn't exist today, no one would dare to invent it.
