An ancient operation, performed by some nations as a religious ceremony. It consists in removing circularly a portion of the prepuce of infants ;-a custom, which was probably suggested with a view to cleanliness. In cases of extraordinary length of prepuce, or when affected with disease, the operation is sometimes undertaken by surgeons. A similar operation is performed, amongst the AEgyptians, Arabians, and Persians, on the female, by removing a portion of the nymphae; and at times the clitoris.
