To the Editor: In the recent article by Spilsbury and her colleagues on circumcision for phimosis, a key part of their argument hinged on probable rates of phimosis among boys.1 I take no stance for or against circumcision, but I have published on evolutionary aspects of the human foreskin and the origins of circumcision,2 for which I surveyed the literature on the occurrence of phimosis.
