The tip of an infants glans penis was amputated during a circumcision and he required surgery to repair his urethra. The parents sued for medical malpractice but lost the case because doctors agreed that the boy would not suffer any permanent damage. Also, the boy probably had a congenital deformity (chordee) which is difficult to diagnose but can cause complication during circumcision.
