Abstract

Purpose of review: Management of the concealed penis continues to evolve, with several manuscripts having been published over the last several years. Each describes a novel surgical approach, as well as outcome data. Recently a non-surgical, conservative, approach has also been published. Our goal with this review is to examine the most recent work, highlight the commonalities and differences in technique and compare their results. Recent findings: The surgical techniques all adhere to several common principles, and all accompany excellent results. The different manuscripts highlight the importance of classification based upon the underlying cause, as this directs surgical technique. The recent report by Radhakrishnan et al, is the first to describe the successful use of conservative management in select cases, a very appealing approach. Summary: Appropriate management requires a solid understanding of the variable causes of the concealed penis. This allows a more tailored surgical approach and improved outcomes. Accordingly, the management of concealed penis can include a successful non-surgical approach.
