Management of acute paraphimosis in a 3-year-old boy: A case report and current treatment options


Volkan Sarper Erikci

Paraphimosis is a disease when the foreskin of an uncircumcised penis is left retracted behind the glans penis for a time period. An uncircumcised boy with paraphimosis was treated with dorsal slit following subsequent circumcision. If normal anatomy is not corrected, serious consequences can occur, including necrosis or partial amputation of the glans penis; therefore, an urgent approach is necessary. This case is presented and discussed with reference to etiology and current treatment options in paraphimosis which is a rare but real urological emergency problem.
