PMID:  9002574     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Several cases of thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis (TSDVP) have been reported in the literature. Etiologies may include any of the following: trauma associated with vigorous sexual intercourse; penile strangulation caused by a multitude of entities; penile injection; infection; neoplasm; or surgery. We report a rare case of traumatic TSDVP in a cab driver following repeated injury to the penis by a coin-filled pouch. We review the etiologies, mechanism, and treatment of traumatic TSDVP, and attempt to identify men who may be at similar occupational risk.
