Abstract Objective: To present a new alternative technique for surgical treatment of congenital megaprepuce.Materials and Methods: From April 2004 to April 2006, five patients aged 2 to 5 years were treated using the new technique. The technique is described and illustrated. It differs from other techniques in that it takes into consideration the constant ballooning of the foreskin, which gives to the external genitalia the aspect of a penoscrotal transposition. Cosmetic and functional success were also assessed by a case review.Results: After a follow-up of 1 to 3 years, all patients have normal voiding and a satisfactory cosmetic aspect.Conclusion: This new technique could be a useful alternative in treatment of the congenital megaprepuce.
