Our study included 280 patients complaining of small-sized penis. They were seen in the outpatient clinic of the Andrology Department, Kasr El Aini, Cairo University. Patients were collected from 2002 till 2008 and classified into 4 categories from an etiological point of view. Eleven patients (3.9%) were operated upon according to fine selection criteria; six patients were selected for lengthening procedures, while two patients were selected for increasing girth procedures and three patients for combined operation of lengthening and increasing girth techniques. Seven patients showed subjective satisfaction after lengthening procedures and four patients showed subjective satisfaction after increasing girth techniques. In conclusion, detailed analysis of short penis complaint with a proper diagnosis and patient education are required for accurate management of patients complaining of a short penis.
