Ultrasound Diagnosis of Penile Fracture.


A rare but possibly underreported urological emergency is penile fracture which results from tear in the tunica albuginea of the penis. The proposed etiology is forceful manipulation of an erect penis or secondary to blunt trauma. We would like to report a case of young patient presenting with large penile shaft hematoma and deformity. The patient did not provide obvious history of trauma or sexual intercourse. The ultrasound of penis was performed which suggested the diagnosis of penile fracture and ultrasound findings were correlated with peroperative findings.
