Abstract Infective penile gangrene is a rare but known complication of circumcision. The causes may vary from neutropenia, diabetes mellitus, and human immunodeficiency virus infection to lymphoproliferative malignancy. Penile mycosis leading to penile gangrene is a rare entity. Only 1 case has been reported in an adult. Juvenile diabetes mellitus is a peculiar predisposing factor for mycotic infections. We report a case of mycotic penile gangrene in a diabetic child to highlight its potentially preventable disastrous outcome. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
