Penile entrapment is a rare and unique condition requiring urgent decompression to preserve the organ function and prevent complications. There is no universal method that is applicable to all cases as there are hardly any guidelines. Management of a 35-year-old male who presented to our emergency room with a metal ring around his penis has been described here. The case report highlights the need to devise one's own method to decompress the entrapped penis based on the available technology and manpower on hand in a given situation.
