Lesions of the pediatric glans penis are uncommon but important for pediatric urological care. Pediatric glans penis lesions have been reported more frequently in the literature in recent years. The lesions are diagnosed at birth or with advancing age. All lesions are benign and diagnosed with a simple physical examination and radiological evaluation. Although, a minority of these lesions have been linked with malignant transformation, the malignant transformation has not been reported for the pediatric glans penis in the literature. After diagnosis and treatment, long-term follow-up is very important. To date, the literature describes 142 pediatric glans penis malformations. We prepared a comprehensive study by using data from 2 different clinics and added 3 new cases from our institutions. The common glans penis anomalies, which are hypospadiac-epispadiac anomalies, were excluded. © 2012 by Turkish Association of Urology.
