Meatal Stenosis

Background

Genital disorders are commonly encountered in the office of the primary care physician. [1Meatal stenosis is a relatively common acquired condition with a symptomatic presentation that occurs in 9-10% of males who are circumcised; the frequency may be as high as 20% after circumcision if the condition is defined as a meatal diameter of less than 5 French. [2]

Meatal stenosis is typically characterized by an upward-deflected, difficult-to-aim urinary stream and, rarely, by dysuria and urgent, frequent, and prolonged urination. Surgical meatotomy or meatoplasty is normally curative.
