Abstract

Penile fracture is a rare condition. It primarily involves the rupture of the corpus cavernosum during erection, which may also affect the corpus spongiosum and urethra. We describe the case of a 35-year-old man who presented with acute penile pain, penile swelling, and a hematuria after a blunt trauma during sexual intercourse. The emergency retrograde urethrogram revealed a rare condition, extravasation of the opaque material from the penile urethra into the cavernous structure. The partial rupture of the corpus cavernosum with urethral disruption was repaired surgically. At the 3-month postoperative follow-up control, no complications were reported by the patient who has had both normal erectile and voiding functions. In cases of penile fracture with suspected urethral injury, retrograde urethrogram can be used for definitive diagnosis.
