Post-traumatic complete or subtotal amputation of the penis is a very rare surgical emergency and is usually caused by self-mutilation during an acute psychotic episode, accidents, as a circumcision complication, criminal assault and animal attacks. Among all these causes, self inflicted and accidental injuries cover a large portion of this form of penoscrotal trauma and assault being a very uncommon cause. Here, we report a case of a 26 year-old man who sustained subtotal penile amputation following a criminal assault and underwent successful revascularization after a total warm ischemia time (WIT) of around 14 hours.
