Jesus LE, Bragan├ža JJ, Rocha JM, Dekermacher S, Anderson KM - Indian J Urol (2014)

Bottom Line: Urethral anastomosis and glanuloplasty were done after removal of the constricting ring, without complications.Normal erections were reported during follow up.Treatment may involve urethral reconstruction and penile reimplantation in extreme cases.

ABSTRACT
Penile hair tourniquet (PHT) is a painless form of penile ischemia, typically seen in toddlers with long-haired mothers, caused by entanglement of hair on the balano-prepucial sulcus, normally associated with circumcision. Its association with hypospadias has been reported only once. A school-aged boy admitted for surgery to treat hypospadias failure was incidentally detected to have PHT and severe hourglass deformity of the penis. Urethral anastomosis and glanuloplasty were done after removal of the constricting ring, without complications. Normal erections were reported during follow up. Treatment may involve urethral reconstruction and penile reimplantation in extreme cases.

Mentions: The patient has now been followed up for 4 months, with satisfactory esthetic results [Figure 2] and no fistulae. The boy claims to have normal straight erections and urinates from a topic, despite irregularly shaped, meatus.
