Résumé

La morsure humaine des organes génitaux externes est rare. Nous rapportons un cas de plaie scrotale par morsure humaine, liée à un différend d’ordre sexuel. La lésion était une plaie récente par arrachement du sommet du scrotum, sans atteinte testiculaire. Cette plaie a été favorablement traitée par un parage et une suture scrotale sous couverture d’une antibiothérapie, avec un calendrier vaccinal contre le tétanos à jour.
