Avulsion injuries of the male external genitalia & rupture of the diaphragm following road traffic accident.

Abstract

Injury to the male external genitalia and rupture of the diaphragm, are two very uncommon autopsy findings. To the best of our knowledge such a combination of injuries has not been reported in one particular case of autopsy in an English scientific literature. Degloving of the male external genitalia & rupture of the diaphragm may result from motor vehicle accidents, industrial accidents, gunshot & stab injuries. A rare case of traumatic degloving injury of the male external genitalia associated with rupture of the diaphragm & intermingling of thoracic & abdominal viscera is presented here.
