Hidden penile fracture: An unusual presentation and review of literature.

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.

Figure 3: Spongiosum dissected off the corpus cavernosum revealing the ventral most aspect of cavernosae

Mentions: Dissecting the spongiosum off the cavernosae revealed a sudden gush of a small amount of altered blood suggestive of a concealed hematoma followed by visualization of a 1 cm long tear in the tunica albuginea in the distal ventral shaft, approximately 2 cm proximal to the glans [Figure 2]. This was repaired with absorbable 3-0 interrupted sutures with buried knots [Figure 3].
