Self-castration: a case report

We present a case of an apparently well gentleman performing self-castration. On presentation he was in shock. After resuscitation his wound was explored and haemostasis achieved. While such presentations are seen with a background of psychiatric illness, our patient did not suffer from such disorders. This case emphasises the importance of a multi-disciplinary holistic approach for optimum patient care.
