Various etiological factors have been proposed to explain congenital buried penis. Recent literature favors dysgenetic dartos tissue with abdominal attachments proximally and to the dorsal covernosum. A prominent prepubic fat pad is also a common primary factor in addition to dysgenetic dartos fascia. Secondarily, buried penis may be the result of an overzealous circumcision with subsequent cicatricial scar (trapped penis), a large hernia or a hydrocele.
