Contemporary surgical techniques for concealed penis defined in the literature are sophisticated and, because of this, we decided to perform a simple technique. A child with penoscrotal web was admitted to our Pediatric Surgery Clinic. The patient had recurrent urinary tract infections without urinary tract disease and, therefore, web reconstruction was thought to be useful. A modified unfurling technique and penoscrotal angle reconstruction was used. The main characteristic of our procedure can basically be described as an oblique incision of the outer foreskin leaf which guides the next steps. We report the operative and clinical course of the patient. We demonstrated that the penoscrotal web was treated simply and effectively as an outpatient procedure. In addition, in the follow-up period, we found that the patient had acceptable and cosmetic penile skin. © The Author(s), 2010.
