Ectopic modified sebaceous glands in human penis (Journal article)

Batistatou, A./ Panelos, J./ Zioga, A./ Charalabopoulos, K. A.

The balanopreputial sulcus is believed to be the most frequent site of the so-called Tyson's glands. The intriguing feature of these anatomical structures is their mere existence, which has been doubted. Herein, the authors present a case of a 24-year-old man who underwent surgical treatment of his phimosis. On microscopic examination of the specimen, glands with morphological features similar to those described by Tyson were noted.
