Acquired Meatal Stenosis

It occurs following circumcision (removal of the foreskin) in neonates. It is thought to be due to an inflammatory reaction occurring following circumcision. It might also be caused due to lack of blood supply to the meatus following circumcision.

Meatal stenosis might also be caused due to a condition called Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans. It appears as a whitish plague which may involve the foreskin, glans penis as well.

Meatal stenosis in adults occurs following inflammation, specific or non-specific urethral infection and trauma (especially in association with indwelling catheters or urethral instrumentation).
