Abstract
A three year old cross breed Brahman bull weighing 450kg was presented to the large animal unit of Universiti Putra Malaysia Veterinary Hospital with swollen and protruding penis. Physical examination of the penis revealed an inflamed glans penis (balanitis). The condition was effectively managed with the administration of anti-inflammatory agent and antibiotic until complete healing ensured. Therefore, it is pertinent that prompt and timely intervention of such condition is important in order to avoid prolonged prolapse of the glans penis, which will result in excessive swelling, ischemia, necrosis and permanent fibrous adhesions of the penis to the prepuce.

Key words: Bull, balanitis, inflammation, penis
