Abstract

Genital self-mutilation, whether partial or complete, is a rare condition, which usually occurs in psychotic patients and occasionally has a religious background. The initial management of complete genital self-mutilation usually involves a formation of perineal urethrostomy or a moKe complex procedure to form a short penile stump. Here, we present a cast of complete genital self-mutilation in a psychotic male who was managed with simple urethal spatulation to form an anterior urethrostomy.
