A Study of the Clinical Profile & Complications in Adults Undergoing Circumcision: An Observational Study

Dr Nikunj Nandan, Dr Arvind Kumar Tyagi

Background: Circumcision is one of the oldest & among the most common surgeries performed worldwide. WHO estimates that globally 30 % of males aged 15 & above are circumcised, with almost 70 % of these being Muslims. Very little data is available on the clinical profile & complications of adults undergoing circumcision. Method: This is an observational study carried out between May 2017-Aug 2019 in 118 patients who presented to a tertiary care hospital for circumcision. Results: 73 % of the patients belonged to age group between 20-39 yrs. 67 % of them were married, with a vast majority coming from urban background ie 89 %. Most common indication for surgery was phimosis seen in about 84 % of the patients. And the most common complications seen were pain with edema & hemorrhage seen in 7 % & 3 % of the patients respectively. Conclusion: Circumcision despite being considered a minor surgery, can have multiple complications, most of which can be managed conservatively
