Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: Our study aims to study the combined manual retracting and topical steroid application method for the treatment of post-circumcision cicatrix in neonates and infants and to establish the need for a secondary intervention.
Material and Methods: A total of 20 patients applying to our clinic with post-circumcision cicatrix between April 2018 and January 2019 were evaluated retrospectively. Multivariable analyses assessed the association between the age of the patients and the onset of complaints associated with cicatrix, the time to onset of symptoms, and the duration of recovery.
Results: The mean age at admission was 7.8 months (4-13 months), and the mean age at circumcision was 3.4 months (2 weeks-6 months). In our study, all the patients had been fully recovered after the treatment with combination of topical 0.1% betamethasone ointment and manual retraction. The mean duration of treatment was 30.6 days (14-56 days).
Conclusion: In this study, we reported our observations related to the treatment only with 0.1% Betamethasone ointment and manual retraction for the first time in the literature. We believe that before choosing secondary applications which potentially traumatize the patient, insisting on topical steroid and manual retraction will provide a satisfactory outcome.
