Background: Circumcision is largely performed and is considered to be technically simple and safe but it may occasionally lead
to important complications.
Aim: To report the case of a patient who underwent a circumcision and presented a complication that obliged the use of skin
grafts to recover the penis.
Materials and Methods: A 12-year old boy with neurogenic bladder underwent a circumcision using Plastibell device and
presented a fasciitis of the lower abdomen and perineum with necrosis of the skin of the penis. He was submitted to a new surgical
intervention where skin grafts from the abdomen were used to cover the body of the penis
Result: The cosmetic aspect of the penis was considered adequate at six months after the surgical procedure.
Conclusion: The use of skin graft could be a good and reliable alternative for different conditions resulting in buried penis.
