To establish pediatric penile and glans anthropometry nomograms. This may be used as a reference model for penile assessment while managing hypospadias. Between October and Septemberboys of varying ages 0—16 years were included in the study. Those with genetic, endocrine disorders, having genital anomaly, undescended testis, neonates, and infants with a nonretractile prepuce, with multiple congenital anomalies and refusal to take part in the study were excluded.
A 5-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital last month for evaluation and treatment of cellulitis of the penis. He woke up with the swelling, complaining of pain the day of admission and was evaluated by his primary provider who sent him for a urology consult. Because the problem persisted without improvement during the course of the day, he was taken to the local hospital emergency room, which referred him to the regional medical center emergency department ED. By history, he urinated upon awakening that morning, but not since. Because of this, he was catheterized, obtaining an undetermined amount of urine with a specific gravity of 1.
The tip or head of the penis is known as the glans penis. Sometimes the glans can be inflamed or infected. This condition is called balanitis. Balanitis may be caused by bacteria, fungus, or yeast.
