Congenital megaprepuce (CMP) is a rare entity. Two infant boys presented with a tight congenital phimosis resulting in an excessively baggy, urine-filled prepuce and a swollen scrotum. Compression of the scrotum resulted in drainage of urine. We feel this to be a separate entity from a buried penis and recommend early surgery. The phimotic tip of the foreskin was excised and the inner layer preserved to cover the full length of the penile shaft. The outer layer of the foreskin, in reality the penoscrotal junction, was anchored to the base of the penile shaft. A V-shaped edge of ventral skin was excised and the edges approximated, giving the appearance of median raphe. The final appearance was that of a circumcised penis. A third patient awaits operation.
