Pilonidal Sinus affects different regions of the body, gluteal cleft being the most common. This condition affecting the penis is extremely rare with only a few case reports around the world. It is prone for complications like infection, actinomycosis, abscess formation, erectile dysfunction and phimosis amongst others. We present a case of Pilonidal sinus of the penis where a pre-operative diagnosis was made and appropriate treatment in the form of circumcision prevented complications.

Pilonidal sinus disease of the penis: A case report and review of the literature

Unexpected location of pilonidal sinuses
TLDR

EXCISION WITH MIDLINE CLOSURE VERSUS MODIFIED BASCOM PROCEDURE IN TREATMENT OF SACROCOCYGEAL PILONIDAL SINUS
TLDR
In conclusion, modified Bascom procedure is feasible, effective and applicable for all patients with pilonidal sinus, and of particular advantages in the treatment of complex, recurrent and chronic non-healing pil onidal sinuses when wound healing remains an important dilemma in the surgical treatment.
