High-flow or arterial priapism is an uncommon condition resulting from perineal or penile trauma. The classical features are a painless erection of the cavernous bodies while the corpus spongiosum stays flaccid. This case highlights a 11-year-old boy who presented with painless semi rigid erection of 3 days duration following a blunt skateboard injury to his perineum. Following failed conservative treatment, the patient underwent bilateral internal pudendal angiography with localization and embolization. Follow up in 1 month showed patient to have normal nocturnal and reflexogenic erections. Medical and surgical treatments for high-flow priapism have been described in literature with varying degree of success and complications. The current accepted standard of care is pelvic angiography and super-selective embolization of internal pudendal artery.
