Abstract

A case of spontaneous intermittent priapism in a patient with spinal canal stenosis is presented. Erection, as well as intermittent neurogenic claudication and urinary incontinence were provoked by physical exertion, mainly walking. The symptoms completely resolved after decompressive lumbar laminectomy.
