Partial priapism is also called partial segmental thrombosis of the corpus cavernosum. It is a rare pathology, and its aetiology, physiopathology and treatment are still not completely understood. To our knowledge, partial priapism due to alpha blockers has not been reported previously in the literature. In this study, a successfully treated case of partial priapism occurring after the usage of alpha blocker is presented and discussed in light of the related literature.
