Abstract

Priapism is defined as a prolonged erection of the penis unrelated to sexual desire or manual stimulation. Non-ischemic priapism frequently occurs as a result of penile or perineal trauma, but the unknown etiology is rare in boys. We report a case in a 6-year-old boy who was managed successfully with conservative treatment consisting of steroid tapering and perineal ice-pack compression therapy following blood gas analysis of the cavernosum and penile duplex ultrasonography. Complete detumescence was achieved after two weeks. Thus far, the patient has had no recurrence for 6 months.
