Turk J Pediatr. Jan-Mar 1995;37(1):79-82.

Abstract

Circumcision is one of the most common operations performed world-wide and is usually done for religious and social reasons. Although it is a simple procedure, serious complications may result. These complications may range from hemorrhage to total amputation. Reconstruction of a partial amputation of phallus due to circumcision by full-thickness skin grafting is presented in this paper.
