Pathologic and physiologic phimosis: Approach to the phimotic foreskin.
Pathologic phimosis can occur at any age and may be caused by forceful tearing of the foreskin by attempts at retraction at an earlier age, chronic balanoposthitis (scarring of the glans and/or foreskin as a result of inflammation and scarring), phimotic ring (an area of narrowed foreskin that does not relax with retraction and may be secondary to scarring), frenulum breve, and persistent infant adhesions.
