    Penile strangulation is a devastating injury with a spectrum of causes and possible outcomes. Causes can be intentional or unintentional. Objects such as ball bearings, rings, condoms, and rubberbands have caused this condition, as have hair and plastibell rings. This article describes the cases of five patients with strangulation injuries of the penis. For each case, the cause of strangulation, the treatment and the outcome are presented.
