Inconspicuous penis is an umbrella term used to categorize several anatomic anomalies that occur in newborn boys. The consequences of this anomaly may be catastrophic unless it is accurately diagnosed. Repeated circumcisions will accentuate the problem without any solution. Keloid formation on the penis is exceptionally rare even though circumcision is a world-wide procedure. Herein, we present a 13-year-old boy with a buried glans penis, micturation difficulty, and keloid formation. He was previously circumcised twice before admission to our clinic. A surgical correction together with intralesional steroid injection was performed. The outcome of this procedure was satisfactory. We conclude that repeated circumcision may not be the best choice of treatment for keloid formation on the penis.
