Priapism is the abnormal persistence of erection, painful and not sexually induced. Many cases resolve spontaneously, but if it persists for a long time there is anoxic injury and fibrosis of the corporal tissues and the sequelae is impotence. The main problem with priapism is pain and the probability of a resultant impotence. We have managed 2 patients with recurrent priapism with insertion of penile prosthesis with satisfactory results.
