Intentional self-mutilation of the genitals in males is exceedingly rare and the most recent review included only about 50 cases. The ideal way to handle such cases is by microsurgical techniques, but they require special equipment, instruments and training. We therefore developed a simple, standard technique which can be performed by general surgeons. We report a 19-year-old male in whom the technique was used successfully.
