A 24-year-old man with penile congenital curvature who underwent partial thickness tunical shaving and plication with absorbable suture presented 1 month after surgery with a mass at the base of the right corpus cavernosum at the level of the original plication. We believe that corporeal herniation after tunical shaving and plication must be considered a complication of the technique independent from the type of suture used for the plicatures and probably related both to the opening of plications of the albuginea before permanent adhesion of the tunical layers, and to the decreased resistance of the albuginea, probably because of excessive shaving.
