Penile fracture usually presents acutely with a history of pain, swelling and sudden loss of erection during intercourse. Ultrasound can be useful both in the acute and chronic phases. Hematoma, secondary to simple superficial vessel rupture, or more importantly, a tunica albuginea defect (which usually requires immediate surgical management), can often be identified acutely. Ultrasound may be of value in the patient where there is clinical doubt and is also useful to document the site and type of fracture, since the results of early surgical repair are favorable. Complications of penile fracture include corporeal fibrosis with or without plaque formation, frequent disruiption of the tunica albuginea and rarely urethral disruption and impotence due to impairment of the veno-occlusive mechanism.
