Penile zipper injury is the most common cause of penile damage in uncircumcised children.

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.
