Annular constriction of the glans penis

Nelson Lee Novick, Michael E. Gribetz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An otherwise healthy, 15-year-old white male adolescent presented with a hitherto unreported, traumatically induced, ringlike depression around the glans penis resulting from the circumferential entrapment of a fibrous strand within the glans during infancy. The surgical reconstruction of the lesion and the differential diagnosis of annular constricting lesions of the appendages are discussed.
