OBJECTIVE: To compare clinical improvement between treatment with metilprednisolone aceponate vs. betamethasone dipropionate among children with nonretractable prepuce. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between August 2001 and November 2002, we carried out a double blind and controlled clinical trial in 34 children with a diagnosis of nonretracable prepuce. Children were randomly assigned to one of the following groups and topical treatment was administered: Group A; metilprednisolone aceponate 0. I 1% and Group B; betamethasone dipropionate 0.05%. RESULTS: Improvement was noted in 88.2% of our sample studied; (n= 15) children from group A and 76.4% (n= 13) childrenfrom group B; however, we did not observe a significant difference when comparing percentages between the two groups (chi2 = 0.2; p = 0.6). CONCLUSIONS: The percentage of clinical improvement was similar between the two groups of topical steroid treatment administered.
