Synopsis

Although genital injury is not uncommon, it often elicits anxiety from parents of injured, young children. In childhood, the main cause of penetrating perineal injury is impalement. However, in every case of penile, scrotal, or anorectal injury, sexual abuse must be ruled out.

There have been documented cases of impalement on broom or toilet-brush handles, pogo sticks, chair legs, bicycle seat poles, sprinklers, high jump bars, and tree branches.
