Penile tourniquet injury probably is not a rare entity and has been reported following the application of numerous foreign objects, including rings, rubber bands, bottles, pipes and threads. Penile strangulation caused by a coil of hair frequently is an unrecognized clinical entity with severe potential complications, such as urethrocittaneous fistulas, necrosis of the glands and partial or complete amputation of the glands. We report an interesting case of penile strangulation secondary to a strand of human hair and discuss important anatomical considerations, mechanism of injury and methods or treatment.
