The corona of glans penis on an erect uncircumcised penis

The corona of glans penis refers to the circumference of the base of the glans penis in human males which forms a rounded projecting border, overhanging a deep retroglandular sulcus, behind which is the neck of the penis.

It is the location where some males may develop Hirsuties papillaris genitalis, or "pearly penile papules", a common and harmless condition.
