Self-mutilation is a rare situation including all practices leading to tissue or organ damage, with a vital or functional risk without intent of suicide. It is most often observed in vulnerable psychotic conditions, particularly schizophrenia. The diagnosis of self-mutilation is clinical and its management requires collaboration between the urologist and the psychiatrist. We report two cases of genital self-mutilation in our clinic.
