We report a case of priapism in a newborn and the results of a review of the publications on neonatal priapism. A preterm newborn developed idiopathic priapism on the first day after birth. The priapism disappeared after 4 days of observation. Periods with normal penile erection were reported at follow-up after 20 months. The results of the literature review also advocate management by observation alone.
