Abstract

Fracture of the penis is a well-recognized yet relatively uncommon urologic event. Forceful, blunt trauma with lateral bending of the penis in an erect state typically results in a transverse rupture of the tunica albuginea of the corpus cavernosum. Longitudinal tears of the corpus cavernosum are by themselves considered infrequent. We present a rare case of a patient with longitudinal rupture of the distal corpus cavernosum with concomitant extension to the corpus spongiosum causing partial urethral disruption as a result of trauma during sexual intercourse.
