Abstract

Penile injuries in childhood are uncommon as the penis is mobile and largely
protected by its position. The cause and type of penile trauma varies in severity from a
simple entrapment in a zipper to the more serious injuries and total emasculation. We
report a 14-year-old male child who presented to the casualty of our hospital with a
near total amputation of the penis following entrapment of his penis in a machine
belt. A degloving injury was noted over the shaft of the penis, with a deep contused
lacerated wound over the mid shaft region and the distal segment hanging with a
small shred of tissue. The penis was reconstructed. Penile reconstruction done under
strict sterile conditions and using the residual tissues gives good functional and
cosmetic results.
