Sabharwal S, George AJ, Singh JC - Urol Ann (2015 Apr-Jun)

Bottom Line: Penile fractures, a not so uncommon urological emergency, mostly present with a characteristic history and physical examination.Here, we present an atypical case where even in the absence of physical findings, a characteristic history led us to penile exploration and timely repair, highlighting the importance of careful history-taking in these cases.
