The pathological form derives from an inflammatory or traumatic lesion. Circumcision is the most common surgical treatment of phimosis but it is a controversial practice, especially in occidental world. 
Methods: We enrolled 61 patients with pathological phimosis (22/balanoposthitis, 18/painful erection, 21/ urinary discomfort) between 2015–2017. 
Results: All patients underwent preputialplasty. 
Conclusions: Various alternatives to circumcision have been described, as manual retraction therapy, topical steroid therapy, and many types of preputialplasty. We report our technique.},
