INTRODUCTION

Buried or concealed penis is an uncommon condition in which the penile shaft is partially or completely obscured by preputial skin. In the majority of cases, it is congenital. Many patients are ill-advisedly referred for circumcision, a procedure which can compromise future repair and cosmetic outcome. We report on the management and outcome of two boys with congenital buried penis, one of whom was initially referred to the authors for circumcision.
