Abstract

In two separate procedures, a psychiatric patient first performed a bilateral orchiectomy on himself and then later attempted to denervate his adrenal glands. This case suggests that physicians should be alerted to the possibility of self-surgery occurring in patients who have sought elective surgery and have been rejected. (JAMA 241:2188-2189, 1979)
