Full-thickness skin grafts from eyelids to penis, plus split-thickness grafts in chronic balanitis xerotica obliterans.

Abstract
Balanitis xerotica obliterans is a progressive, sclerotic, constrictive scar-forming disease process of the penile prepuce that can involve the frenulum and urethral meatus. Full-thickness skin grafting from the upper eyelids supplemented with split-thickness skin grafting was successfully used in a patient to end a 57-year symptomatic course.
