A 45 year old male consulted at our institution due to penile swelling and pain. A metallic ring was placed around his penis 1 week prior to hospitalization. Emergency management by removal of the iron ring with a bolt cutter was done saving the penis from strangulation. However, due to massive skin loss, skin grafting was done with excellent result.
