Objective: To report a case of propofol-induced priapism. Case Summary: A 17-year-old male receiving propofol for induction of anesthesia during a cardiac ablation procedure developed priapism that required medical intervention and discontinuation of propofol. The priapism developed after a total propofol dose of 550 mg, lasted for 2 hours, and resolved immediately following medical intervention. The following day, the patient underwent a transesophageal echocardiogram and received a total…

TLDR
Pediatric clinicians should be aware of this rare side effect, as it requires prompt recognition and potential urologic intervention to alleviate complications, and propofol is a probable cause of the priapism in this patient.
Propofol-Associated Priapism in a Prepubescent Pediatric Patient
TLDR
Pediatric clinicians should be cognizant of this rare adverse effect in pediatric patients with potentially disastrous complications following the use of propofol for sedation in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) setting.
Possible Propofol-Induced Priapism Following Cardiac Catheter Ablation in a Teenager
TLDR
Although priapism rarely occurs as a complication following catheter ablation procedures due to propofol use, prolonged priapisms can result in corporal fibrosis and cause future erectile dysfunction.
Propofol and priapism
Propofol-induced priapism in a 25-year-old male confirmed by rechallenge is reported for its rarity and to create awareness among practitioners, because propofol is used frequently in India for the
Postoperative drug-induced priapism
TLDR
A postoperative patient with low-flow priapism, possibly initiated by propofol-based anaesthesia or epidural anaesthesia, decided against a penile prosthesis due to the delay in treatment; erectile dysfunction ensued and was manageable with medication.
A Comparative Study of Incidence of Occurrence of Complications between Propofol and Propofol-Sevoflurane Method of Induction of Anaesthesia in Hypertensive Patients at a Tertiary Care Hospital
TLDR
Propofol in combination with sevoflurane is better than the induction with propofol alone and increased requirement of ephedrine in between the two study groups.
Priapism associated with atypical antipsychotic medications: a review
TLDR
Clinicians should monitor patients on these medications for this rare, yet significant side effect and Educating patients about the risk of developing priapism would help increase awareness of the sideeffect and promote early reporting thereby, decreasing long-term morbidity.

Priapism in a patient treated with total parenteral nutrition.
TLDR
A case of priapism is reported in a 40-year-old man after administration of total parenteral nutrition for chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, where platelet function was estimated in vivo by the levels of antiheparin platelet factor 4 and beta-thromboglobulin, which were both elevated before 20% lipid emulsion and were even higher after the 20% fat-emulsion infusion.
