Partial priapism is a rare condition. Unlike the typical cases of priapism where the diagnosis is obvious on physical examination, partial priapism generally is initially seen as a perineal mass, and the diagnosis is more difficult. In our case, computed tomography helped make a differential diagnosis of partial priapism.
