Case Report: Penile Fracture from Entrapment of an Erect Penis in the African Bamboo Bed: A Case Report
Penile fracture is an uncommon urological emergency where the tunica albuginea ruptures as a result of blunt trauma to the erect penis. An 18 year old rural patient presented with penile fracture, presumably from entrapment of his penis in the African bamboo bed during nocturnal penile tumescence. He was managed surgically and retained normal erections on follow-up. Using
the African bamboo bed without a mattress may lead to penile entrapment and fracture.
