Priapism

  • Aizid I. Hashmat

Abstract

Priapism is a rare, painful, persistent erection that is usually not associated with sexual desire and not relieved on orgasm. Most cases are of the venoocclusive type; high-flow priapism is exceptionally rare. Timely treatment results in a high degree of success.
