Author(s): Dr. Liyi Karso and Dr. Brunda Bezawada
Balanitis is the inflammation of the glans penis, which often involves the prepuce (balanoposthitis). It is a common condition, affecting boys under the age of four years and uncircumcised men at any age. The causes of balanoposthitis is both infective and non-infective. Infective balanoposthitis is more common in uncircumcised male, as a result of poor genital hygiene, lack of aeration, irritation by smegma, diabetes mellitus and immune suppression. Infection is a relatively uncommon cause of acute balanoposthitis in children. Balanitis by irritation, trauma, chemicals or medicines are some of the non-infectious causes. Complications associated with balanitis include the development of pain, ulcerative lesions of the glans/foreskin, phimosis, paraphimosis, meatal/urethral stricture, and malignant transformation of premalignant lesions. In this report, a case of balanitis has been documented where the patient was suffering from fever and inflammation of glans with prepuce and body of penis even after the conventional treatment for three days. Marked improvement was seen in both the local and general symptoms after homoeopathic individualized medicine.
