Abstract


Male circumcision is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures and the Plastibell® device is a popular method used to perform circumcisions in neonates and young children. We report a case of a 9-year-old otherwise healthy boy who developed foreign body granulomas following Plastibell® circumcision which was carried out in the community by a medically trained practitioner. His post-operative course was complicated by a retained Plastibell® ring and development of multiple non-healing wounds and granulomas. This patient underwent a semi-elective examination under general anesthesia, wound exploration and re-do modified circumcision. At 4 month follow up the wound was well healed without scarring and the patient reported a normal single straight stream urinary flow.
