Abstract

Penile fracture is a urological emergency caused by blunt trauma to an erect penis. We report a case of a 40-year-old male who presented with a complaint of a painful swelling of the penis for 4 days. On examination, a flaccid swollen tender penis with bluish discoloration over the shaft and scrotum was noted. A clinical diagnosis of delayed penile fracture was made which was managed immediately surgically under spinal anesthesia. Our
report emphasizes that penile fracture is diagnosed solely on a reliable history and clinical examination. It has outstanding outcome despite delayed presentation if treated promptly.
