Abstract

Aposthia is a very rare congenital abnormality in which the prepuce is missing. The prepuce is a common anatomical covering of the glans penis. There are some reports on boys being born without a prepuce among Jews and Muslims, but this is more likely to actually be hypospadias. We present a boy with an actual natural circumcision or aposthia.
