Elephantiasis of the external genitalia is characterized by lymphedema and thickening of the subcutaneous tissues. This gives the skin an appearance similar to a pachyderm skin. Reconstructive surgery is often the only way to restore aesthetic and functional aspects of the external genitalia. We aim to report a 63 year man with penoscrotal elephantiasis who underwent excision and penoscrotal reconstruction at the department of General Surgery, Mamata General Hospital, Khammam.
