Conclusion:

 

In our country majority of circumcisions are performed by traditional untrained persons with

 

high complication rate, often disastrous one. Properly training the paramedical staff can not only reduce

the physical morbidity but will also save the resources spent on management of these potentially

preventable complications.

A total of 24 patients were included in this study. Common complications in order of frequency

 

were urethrocutaneous fistula 8(33.3%), glans injury 6(25%) and bleeding 5(20.8%). In majority of cases

20(83.33%), the circumcision was performed by unqualified circumciser.

It was a two years (January 2006 – December 2007) descriptive study. All patients

 

with complications of circumcision, presenting immediately or late and fulfilling the inclusion criteria were

included in this study.

To describe the spectrum and management of circumcisional injuries.
