Penile zipper injury is the most common cause of penile damage in uncircumcised children. A 4-year-old uncircumcised child admitted to the emergency due to the injury of dorsal penis caused by the zipper of his trousers. A 3 cm length of penile skin was found to be captured by the teeth of the metal zipper. Herein, we reported our management of a penile zipper injury with proper follow up and a delayed circumcision procedure in an uncircumcised child.
