Resumen

PARRA-TELLO, Teresita; HERNANDEZ-RAMOS, María Isabel; PEREZ-TAPIA, Sonia Mayra  y  LIMON-FLORES, Alberto Yairh. A retrospective study of the effect of mometasone furoate 0.1% in the nonsurgical treatment of phimosis and preputial adhesions in Mexican children. Bol. Med. Hosp. Infant. Mex. [online]. 2012, vol.69, n.1, pp. 24-29. ISSN 1665-1146.

Background. In this study we evaluated the effect of mometasone furoate (0.1%) as a nonsurgical treatment of phimosis in Mexican children. Methods. We carried out a retrospective and descriptive study including 129 patients between 1 and 8 years old who were treated with the topical administration of 0.1% mometasone furoate on the prepuce and glans once daily for 4 weeks followed by sinechiotomy at the end of treatment. Results. After sinequiotomy, the foreskin was able to be fully retracted over the glans in 98% of the patients; however, in 20% of patients it returned to the original condition. Overall long-term efficacy was 81% (95% CI: 73-89). Conclusions. Topical administration of mometasone furoate (0.1%) was effective in the detachment of the foreskin of the prepuce from the glans, making it an effective, nonsurgical treatment for phimosis.
