Key words: Phimosis, Steroids, Circumcision, Paediatrician

Verifying the long term (six months) efficacy and the appropriateness of treating boys, to whom circumcision had been recommended, with steroid ointment. 7 primary care paediatricians referred 49 boys with suspected phimosis to surgical examination; in 45 cases the diagnosis was confirmed and circumcision was recommended. 41 families accepted the treatment with 0.05% betamethason ointment twice a day for a month. Two controls were done: at 30 and 180 days. At the end of the 30 days control, good retraction of the foreskin was present in 36 boys, with 4 recurrences at the follow-up. According to the sensitivity analysis, the success rate was 68.9%. Topical treatment with steroid ointment is safe, effective and inexpensive; it can be prescribed by the primary care paediatrician, before referral to a surgeon.
