PEREZ-ELIZONDO, AD  and  FLORES MIRANDA, R. Zoon´s balanitis or plasmocellular balanoposthitis: a case report and a brief review of the literature. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2013, vol.94, n.3. ISSN 1851-300X.

We report a middle-aged male with a chronic irritant balanoposthitis, a benign inflammatory reaction simulating a Queyrat erythroplasia or penile in situ squamous cell carcinoma, with prolonged and asymptomatic clinical course satisfactorily controlled with the use a calcineurin inhibitor for more than ten weeks. The importance of this report lies in the low prevalence of the disease, identification and timely recognition, distinct from other disease entities specific for this location and the treatment options available to us.

Keywords : Zoon´s balanitis; Tisular irritation; Swollen erythematous plaque.
