Zoon's balanitis, is a chronic erosive lesion on glans penis, which on biopsy shows a plasma cell infiltrate in dermal layers. It is typical in uncircumcised males. We are reporting a rare case of Zoon's balanitis in our insti­tution. A 21-year-old unmarried male presented with pain and discharge from penis. A velvety patch was noted over glans. He underwent circumcision and the patch was ex­cised and sent for biopsy. Histopathological report was consistent with balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis. We reviewed the literature about similar reports.
