Synopsis

Zoon plasma cell balanitis, or balanitis plasmacellularis, is characterized by chronic red patches or plaques of unknown etiology involving the glans penis and the foreskin. Lesions may extend to the distal end of the shaft.

Zoon plasma cell balanitis is usually asymptomatic, but pruritus may occur. It is seen much more frequently in men between the ages of 40 and 80. It is seen mostly in uncircumcised men and is associated with poor hygiene and chronic irritation.
