Case Discussion

USG (19 days post trauma) - Proximal part of penile shaft is abnormal. There is ventral defect in tunica albugenia of left corpus cavernosum.Smaller ventral defect is seen in right cavernosum.

USG on 1st day - Haematoma of about 25 mm was noted in the same region - proximal shaft - ventral aspect. Diffuse penile odema was present. Possible tear of tunica was suggested. However, defect could not be localized at that time. Corpus spingiosum showed some mass effect possibly by haematoma.

RUG (courtesy - Dr NInad Shah) - Done after 15 days of trauma showed focal stricture with possible extravasation in proximal - penile urethra.

NO MR was done.

Surgery - Findings confirmed about both tunical tear. Urethral tear was also present at the same site.
