During circumcision, glans amputation is a rare but potentially devastating complication. Causative factors are varied. External genital injury can be categorized as accidental in origin including during circumcision and as other traumatic origins including animal bite, gunshots, or self-mutilation. We report a case of a 4 year child undergoing circumcision with glans injury. He presented to us with bleeding from glans and the partially amputated glans brought together in normal saline. Child underwent immediate glans reimplantation. On one month follow up there was complete glans uptake.
