Abstract

A case of a 37 years old veterinary surgeon who sustained right sided fracture of the base of the penis during masturbation is presented. He was seen more than 48 hours after his injury with the typical painful swelling, angulation and tenderness at the fracture site. The tear was promptly repaired using the Laubscher's subcoronal sleeve technique. He regained his ability to achieve erection on the third post operative day. This is a rare injury on the Jos Plateau--being the only documented case in 11 years in this tertiary health facility and so we consider it necessary to highlight salient points in the diagnosis and treatment. Psychotherapy was found very useful in this patient in order to wean his off masturbation especially during the immediate post operative period. His short term follow up has been uneventful; he is now able to achieve normal and straight erection and sexual intercourse without pain--a view corroborated by his wife.
