Traumatic Penile Amputation: A Case Report and Acute Management

Traumatic penile amputation is a rare clinical situation. We report a case of self-inflicted penile amputation in a patient with psychosis and discuss the surgical management. Acute management largely entails stabilization in preparation for surgery, where options include replantation of the amputated penis versus closure of the remaining stump, depending on the viability of the penis. Although replantation is the best option, it is often not possible and thus closure of the wound is acceptable.
