Abstract

Penile urethral injury may be associated with cavernosal rupture due to distractive force during coitus. Non-coital penile injury due to direct blow to the penis causing penile urethral and cavernosal rupture is rare. Definite management of urethral injury in such cases can be deferred as extent of devitalised tissue can be deceptive in acute conditions.
