A rare case of posttraumatic high-flow priapism is presented. A 20-year-old man underwent diagnostic procedure with color Doppler sonography and angiography. On color Doppler sonography and selective and supraselective angiographic images, arteriocavernosal fistula and pseudoaneurysm were detected in the proximal part of the right cavernous body. Complete detumescence of the penis was achieved by selective embolization with microcoil. No recurrence was observed and postoperative erectile function was incompletely restored. The clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic peculiarities of this rare condition are presented, along with review of the literature on the topic.
