ID#:15138
Description:This image depicts the penis of a male patient which displayed lesions on the glans penis and penile skin, which had been caused by a human bite, and resulted in traumatic balanitis, with accompanying erythema and wound infection where teeth had inflicted the cutaneous trauma.
Though in this case the cause for this condition was a traumatic bite, balanitis can be caused by a fungal agent such as Candida spp., a bacteria, most commonly Streptococcus sp., or a viral pathogen such as herpes genitalis.
