    Successful Management of Zoon's Balanitis with Topical Mupirocin Ointment: A Case Report and Literature Review of Mupirocin-Responsive Balanitis Circumscripta Plasmacelluaris.
    Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2017 Apr 5. Epub 2017 Apr 5.
    Department of Dermatology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA.
    Introduction: Zoon's balanitis, also referred to as balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis (BCP), is an idiopathic, benign inflammatory condition of the glans penis and foreskin most often seen in elderly uncircumcised men. A patient with a biopsy-confirmed diagnosis of BCP who was successfully treated with topical mupirocin ointment is described.

    Methods: The PubMed database was searched with the key words: bactroban, balanitis, cell, circumscripta, mupirocin, plasma, plasmacellularis, tacrolimus, Zoon. Read More

    Zoon Balanitis Revisited: Report of Balanitis Circumscripta Plasmacellularis Resolving With Topical Mupirocin Ointment Monotherapy.
    J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Mar;16(3):285-287

    INTRODUCTION: Zoon balanitis is an idiopathic benign inflammatory condition of the glans penis and prepuce. A patient with biopsy confirmed diagnosis of Zoon balanitis who was successfully treated with topical mupirocin ointment monotherapy is described.

    METHOD: A search using PubMed database was performed using the following terms: Zoon balanitis (cases, diagnosis, treatment of), balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis, and mupirocin. Read More


    Zoon's Balanitis: Benign or Premalignant Lesion?
    Case Rep Dermatol 2009 May 26;1(1):7-10. Epub 2009 May 26.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.
    Zoon's balanitis or balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis is a chronic disease of unknown origin. This condition usually manifests in middle-aged or elderly uncircumcised men. Although of unknown etiology, different factors have been reported to be involved in its genesis (local infections, poor hygiene, heat, friction, and constant rubbing). Read More

    Zoon plasma cell balanitis: an overview and role of histopathology.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2004 ;12(4):268-73
    Ministry of Defense, Republic of Croatia, Zagreb, Croatia.
    Balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis or Zoon's balanitis is an idiopathic, benign condition of the genitalia that mostly presents as a solitary, persistent plaque on the glans of primarily uncircumcised, middle-aged to older men. Its etiology and pathogenesis remains speculative. This article provides an overview of the clinical morphology, microscopic features, differential diagnosis and therapy. Read More

    Review of 120 biopsies performed on the balanopreputial sac. from zoon's balanitis to the concept of a wider spectrum of inflammatory non-cicatricial balanoposthitis.
    Dermatology 2004 ;208(2):120-4
    Institute of Dermatological Sciences of the University of Milan, IRCCS Ospedale Maggiore, Milan, Italy.
    Background: Long-lasting erythematous lesions involving the balanopreputial sac may be clinically difficult to classify, and biopsies may be performed in order to clarify the nature of the disease. However, our previous experience led us to consider several cases as histopathologically unclassifiable.

    Objective: To establish the causes of such unsatisfactory findings. Read More

    [Balanitis/balanoposthitis chronica circumscripta benigna plasmacellularis--entity or fiction?].

    Dermatologische Klinik, Ruhr-Universität-Bochum (RUB).
    During the years 1985 up to 1995 53 patients between 18 and 80 years of age (mean age 54.7 years) with histologically and clinically proven Zoon's balanitis were treated by circumcision. The majority of patients had symptoms for more than 12 months. Read More

    Balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis.
    J Urol 1995 Feb;153(2):424-6
    University of Colorado Medical School, Denver.
    Balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis typically affects the glans penis and/or prepuce, and presents as chronic shiny smooth red-orange plaques. We report on an uncircumcised man with 2 moist red-orange lesions of balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis on the glans and penile shaft, which were refractory to topical therapy and systemic antibiotics, and review the literature. Clinical morphology, microscopic features, differential diagnosis, postulated etiologies and treatments are discussed. Read More

    Balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis: case report with ultrastructural study.
    Acta Derm Venereol 1982 ;62(4):352-6
    A typical case of balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis is described in a 74-year-old man. Electron microscopy revealed a dense infiltrate composed mainly of plasma cells and macrophages; the former showed considerable rough endoplasmic reticulum and phagolysosomes, while the latter contained variable amounts of sideromes. A few mast cells, eosinophils and extravasated erythrocytes were also present. Read More

    Zoon's balanitis (balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis).
    Br J Dermatol 1981 Aug;105(2):195-9
    The clinical and histopathological features of nineteen cases of Zoon's balanitis and a comparable lesion of the vulva have been reviewed. The condition is particularly distinguished by characteristic histological changes affecting the epidermis and the dermal vasculature. The presence of a plasma cell infiltrate is relatively non-specific. Read More
