Abstract

Traumatic fracture of the corpus cavernosum with urethral rupture occurs rarely, mostly during intercourse. About 200 cases have been published. Some reports favor conservative treatment, but lately it has been shown that this results in longer hospitalization and to late complications in 29%. Cavernography should be used in the equivocal cases without hematuria or signs of fracture. We present a case of fracture of the corpus cavernosum and tear in the urethra. Treatment consisted of surgical repair of the tunica albuginea and stenting of the urethra. Long term results were excellent.
