It occurs when an erect penis face to buckle under the pressure of a blunt sexual trauma. Patient gives the typical history of immediate detumescence, severe pain, swelling and eggplant deformity of the penile shaft due to penile injury. Immediate surgical exploration and repair of corpora Cavernosa with tunica albugenia is the most effective treatment modality. In normal cases diagnosis is made from history, physical examination alone. In some special cases ultrasonogram, radiological images, including retrograde urethrography or cavernosography are mandatory for proper diagnosis.
