Bottom Line: A 39-year-old man presented with penile swelling, pain and hematoma associated with sexual intercourse.He had an uneventful postoperative recovery and has resumed normal sexual life.A rectangular-shaped suprapubic and distal penile hematoma with sparing of the proximal penile skin was observed.

ABSTRACT
A 39-year-old man presented with penile swelling, pain and hematoma associated with sexual intercourse. On exploration, he was found to have ruptured the superficial dorsal vein of penis, which was ligated. He had an uneventful postoperative recovery and has resumed normal sexual life. A rectangular-shaped suprapubic and distal penile hematoma with sparing of the proximal penile skin was observed. We believe that this physical sign could aid clinical diagnosis of a ruptured superficial dorsal vein of penis.

Figure 0001: Preoperative illustration showing the bruised area (colored blue) and the spared areas.

Mentions: On examination, the relevant findings were an area of “rectangular-shaped” ecchymosis in the suprapubic area as well as bruising and swelling of the distal penile skin and prepuce (Figs. 1, 2). The proximal penile skin was spared, except for a very small area, which was also the only tender bit on the penile shaft. There was no obvious corporeal defect palpated.
