Diabetes and balanoposthitis.
J Pak Med Assoc. 2016 Aug; 66(8):1039-41.JP

Abstract

This review describes the association of balanoposthitis with diabetes. It reviews the multifaceted relationship of both conditions, and summarizes the etiology, clinical features and treatment options for this condition. The commonest etiology of balanoposthitis in males with diabetes is Candida, and the mainstay of treatment is maintenance of hygiene, euglycaemia, and eradication of infection. The review sensitizes diabetes care providers to take a history and perform a physical examination in persons with penile symptoms, and also encourages dermatology care providers to screen for diabetes in such persons.
