Abstract

Penile amputation during circumcision is a quite rare event. So far, replantation generally requires microsurgical techniques. Yet herein, we report on the successful replantation of a completely amputated penis; the amputation occurred during the circumcision of a 9-year-old boy, and we did not use microsurgical technique for the replantation.
