Circumcision is a customary ritual across many cultures. However, the safety of such procedures remains a concern. A boy underwent circumcision in 2014 by a religious worker at the age of 7 years. Post circumcision, the patient had gradual narrowing of the penis, between the glans and the shaft, with an iatrogenic partial glanular amputation and presented to us at the age of 14 years. The patient underwent end-to-end urethroplasty and glansplasty. Postoperatively, the patient did well and the wound remained healthy. Circumcision has complications even in expert hands. Religious circumcision can result in dreadful complications in children and adolescents.
