Paraphymosis: Picture on left demonstrates edematous foreskin which has become trapped behind
the head of the penis. This is known as paraphymosis. Picture on right demonstrates foreskin in appropriate
position covering head of penis. This was achieved by applying steady pressure to the head of the penis,
reducing edema, which then allowed repositioning of foreskin.
