A penile fracture is an injury caused by the rupture of the tunica albuginea. We report an uncommon case of penile fracture with the complete urethral rupture in a 48-year-old man who sustained the injury during the sexual intercourse. He presented with acute penile pain, swelling on the ventral aspect of the penile shaft and the inability to pass urine associated with urethral bleeding. Retrograde urethrography revealed the complete obstruction of the urethra. Exploration and repair of the penile fracture with the urethra rupture were performed. The patient recovered successfully with good erectile and voiding function.
