Abstract

Penile fracture is considered a urological emergency caused due to direct trauma to an erect penis. Fracture penis is usually encountered in a young patient and is exceeding uncommon in a patent in the seventh decade of life. The mechanism of injury depends on socio-cultural habits. Diagnosis is mostly made by clinical assessment but at times ultrasonography or MRI may be resorted to establishing a diagnosis. There is no role for conservative treatment in this condition and prompt surgical management remains the mainstay of treatment irrespective of age and ensures near-normal erectile function thereafter.
