Fractures " fermées" de la verge: à propos de deux cas [Closed "penile" fractures: about two cases]
Progrès en Urologie
Closed penile fractures without hematoma and without rupture of the albuginea, though frequent, are not well documented. In most cases, faced with no or few symptoms, the patient makes little case of this painful episode. These fractures are secondarily responsible for a fibrotic response of the corpus cavernosum, which bring patients later on to the clinic. Radiological investigations show the fibrotic reaction. A diagnosis is made retrospectively, based on the patient's history.
