Webbed penis is a rare congenital anomaly. Approximately forty cases have been reported, one in an Egyptian baby. We report five more cases, two in Libyan and three in Saudi infants, all diagnosed soon after birth. At operation the penile shaft was released and covered with skin with recreation of the penoscrotal junction. A fibrous band, found in two cases, was excised. The literature is reviewed and some recommendations made for a classification scheme .
