Abstract

Strangulation of penis and scrotum by objects for auto-erotic purpose though common may at times lead to grave complications. Removal of these objects is a challenging task. We report such a case where a mason came to our rescue following failed attempts at surgical removal.

Key words: Foreign body, penis, scrotum.
