Priapism is a prolonged penile erection unrelated to sexual stimulation. High-flow arteriogenic priapism is uncommon and usually occurs after genitoperineal trauma, which may damage a feeding cavernosal artery, leading to an arteriovenous fistula and, occasionally, to an associated pseudoaneurysm. The defects rarely occur bilaterally. Herein, we report successful treatment of ...
