Abstract


Penile fracture is defined as tear or rupture of tunica albuginea of corpus cavernosum in erect condition. This is an uncommon surgical emergency. Most of the injuries occurred by forceful manipulation during masturbation. We studied 14 such cases prospectively during a period of seven and half years, focussing primarily on diagnosis and outcome of prompt surgical management.
