Neonatal circumcision is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the world. As with all surgeries, it carries risks, including rare, but devastating complications, such as glans and/or penile shaft amputation. Complete glans amputation with successful replantation has been previously reported. Herein we report a case of complete amputation at the penile midshaft in a 28-day-old neonate with a unique approach to postoperative care including the use of leech therapy, topical heparin and caudal analgesia following successful microvascular replantation.
