SHOCKING: Snake bites man in his penis

A Dutchman had to have his penis rebuilt when a snake chewed his manhood while he sat on the toilet, causing it to decay.

The event occurred while on a safari tour in South Africa.

According to Urology Case Reports, the 47-year-old sufferer developed scrotal necrosis when the cold-blooded serpent, which was waiting in the toilet bowl, attacked.

The anonymous guy had to wait three hours before being evacuated by helicopter to the nearest trauma center, which was 220 miles away, in what the medical journal characterized as the first occurrence of “snouted cobra envenomation of the genitals.”

“His penis and scrotum were noted to be swollen, deep purple in color, and painful on hospital admission. Scrotal necrosis was diagnosed, and he received multiple doses of a non-specific snake venom antiserum and broad-spectrum antibiotics,” according to the medical report.

The man reported vomiting and a burning sensation as well as pain that shot up from his groin into the abdomen and upper chest – though he developed no neurological symptoms during the ordeal.

He required hemodialysis due to acute kidney injury before undergoing reconstructive surgery.

“The scrotal necrosis was reported to involve the entire fascia (skin to internal spermatic) and was excised with extensive margins. Primary closure was performed, leaving a drain in situ,” Urology Case Reports said.

“The defect in the penile shaft was treated by superficial debridement and a vacuum-assisted closure pump. After 9 days, the patient was repatriated to the Netherlands,” it added.

A plastic surgeon later performed a “penile shaft debridement, with extensive resection of dead tissue extending into the corpus spongiosum to the fold of the preputium.” A graft from the groin was then placed over the penis and he has made a full recovery.
