Definition

Circinate Balanitis: a cutaneous finding of Reiter's syndrome, which in uncircumcised males has the appearance of a moist superficial erosion on the glans penis particularly around the urethral meatus. Lesions may also occur on the corona and shaft. In circumcised males comparable lesions occur on the glans or corona but are often characterized as hyperkeratotic papules or superficial erosions. Characteristically in Reiter's syndrome these lesions are painless.
