Abstract

Priapism is a pathologic state of persistent penile erection in the absence of sexual stimulation. Low flow priapism is more common, which is caused by a venous outflow obstruction. However, high flow priapism is rare, and is caused by uncontrolled arterial flow into penis following perineal or penile blunt injuries. We report a case of high flow priapism secondary to the treatment of low flow priapism.
