Strangulation of penis by hair strands is a well-known, but uncommon clinical entity. We report two cases occurring in circumcised boys causing progressive painless disfigurement of penis with strands of hair coiled around the penile shafts, strangulating the penis. Primary repair was done in one case and delayed primary repair was done in the other, both with satisfactory results.
