self-mutilation ■ penis

A 35 y old man, followed in psychiatry for undocumented schizophrenia with a history of attempted suicide that led to amputation of the left leg. Admitted to emergencies for genital selfmutilation by knife dating back to 16 hours, the examination found a hemodynamically stable patient, a penis amputated at its base without active bleeding (FIGURES 1 and 2). The patient is sent to the operating room for attempted reimplantation of the penis which failed because of the delay in admission to emergencies, a suture of the 2 cavernous bodies associated with a cutaneous urethrostomy are performed (FIGURE 3). The postoperative evolution is favorable without complications.
