Injury to penis is relatively uncommon, but several reports of penile injuries related to machinery accidents have been reported. Corporal injuries usually follow forceful injury to erect penis during coitus however tiles cutter injury is very rare and has not been reported in the literature. We report a case of corporal injury due to electrically driven stone (tiles) cutter machine. He sustained an injury of about 20 cm, extending from the coronal sulcus to the left thigh. There was associated corporal injury measuring 6 × 2 cm. Following resuscitation the patient was taken for repair of the penoscrotal wound under spinal anesthesia. The wound was thoroughly washed with normal saline and sutured in layers. The patient had a functionally and cosmetically normal penis at 6 months follow-up.
