We present a case of neuroma formation following the circumcision of an 11-year-old boy. Amputation neuroma is an extremely rare clinical finding. In the literature only a few cases of amputation neuroma have been reported, mainly located in the biliary tract, in the cystic duct, or in the main hepatic duct after cholecystectomy [1, 4, 8]. There are also few reported cases localised at the orbit, on the great auricular nerve [2], and in the neck after radical neck dissection for oral cancer [5, 7]. Neuroma formation has also been reported after digital amputation [6]. The only reported case of genital amputation neuroma is in a 27-year-old infibulated African woman [3].
