Abstract

Scrotum and penis can be injured by degloving or penetrating injuries. Degloving injuries look devastating but are generally free of infection and heal with satisfying results. Review of literature revealed single stage for partial and staged procedures for the treatment of complete avulsion of penis and scrotum. A case of complete avulsion of penis and scrotum has been presented as it has been treated with a single staged procedure with excellent results.
