Degloving injuries most commonly involve lower limbs and involvement of the abdominoperineal region with genitals is rare. These injuries are commonly sustained during industrial and farming accidents in which a large rotational force avulses the skin and subcutaneous tissue from the underlying fascia. Even though such injuries usually are not lethal but these are associated with morbidities and are devastating to the patients psychologically if not treated properly. Staged reconstruction with flaps or skin grafts or a combination of both is the main modalities described for treating such injuries to get satisfactory aesthetic results with normal voiding function and erection of the penis.

Key words: Degloving, Injury, reconstruction, graft, flap
