Fifty patients presenting with either primary or recurrent patchy balanoposthitis which became aceto-white after the application of 5% acetic acid underwent biopsy. Microbiological screening, including Grocott staining of the biopsy material for fungal hyphae was performed.

This study suggests that HPV may be associated with some cases of patchy balanoposthitis.
