Abstract

Traumatic injuries of male external genitalia are rare and not usually life threatening; however, they can have psychological repercussions. The reconstructive management of these lesions is challenging and articulated. We report the case of a 38-year-old farmer suffering from a degloving wound on the external genitalia. The first reconstructive step used to treat the wound was the incorporation of a dermal regeneration template (Integra®) and accordingly partial-thickness skin grafts and local flaps. The follow-up 16 months after the first treatment was satisfying; sexual function had been restored.
