Abstract

Penile fracture is a rare urological emergency resulting from tear in the tunica albuginea of the penis due to forceful manipulation of an erect penis. We would like to report a case suspected of penile fracture presenting with large hematoma over the glans penis in which, ultrasound was used to confirm the diagnosis and correlate the ultrasound and intra operative findings.

Keywords

penile fracture, corpus cavernosum, corpus spongiosum, tunica albuginea, Bucks fascia.
