The Relationship between Neonatal Circumcision, Urinary Tract Infection, and Health. The world journal of men's health Eisenberg, M. L., Galusha, D., Kennedy, W. A., Cullen, M. R. 2018

We review the weight of evidence and utilize current statistical methodology on observational data to examine the risks and benefits of neonatal circumcision.
