Abstract

Deposition of smegma in the subpreputial region is common in young uncircumcised boys. Although the term "smegma pearls" has been used colloquially for this entity, there is an apparent lack of reference to smegma pearls and their characteristics in the extant scientific literature. We present a series of six Indian boys with smegma pearls and discuss their possible origin, course, and management.
