The majority of nonritual circumcisions are performed with the aid of devices, the metallic bell (Gomco) clamp and the plastic bell clamp. A significant number of complications, mostly minor, have been found in the literature dealing with circumcision. Concealed penis, one such complication, was recently seen in two infants. Inadequate dissection of the prepuce and removal of excess penile skin are the causes of this complication.
