We report a case of total amputation of the penis by dog bite in a 09-year-old paraplegic child who arrived at the emergency room of the Cove Zone Hospital at 4am. The wound was trimmed and sutured, the urethral orifice everted and sutured to the wound edges and a Foley catheter was placed in the bladder. This occurrence of a total amputation of the penis in this paraplegic child placed an additional psychosocial burden on his family.
