There are a lot of sexual myths out therebut doctors confirm that broken penises aren't one of them. Remember when Lexie Grey supposedly broke Mark Sloan's penis back when all our favorite characters on Grey's Anatomy were still alive? Nope, Shonda Rhimes wasn't making that up. While there aren't actually bones in the penis, a penile fracture is a real-life injury.

Distinguishing penile ecchymosis from a true penile fracture, or a rupture through the tunical albuginea, can be a challenging clinical conundrum. A penile fracture typically occurs in the setting of blunt penile trauma to the erect penis, most often during sexual intercourse or masturbation. Physical examination findings may vary significantly in patients with a history suggestive of penile fracture, and the severity of the penile ecchymosis frequently does not correlate with the presence or absence of tunical rupture. This clinical picture can be even more confusing if the patient received collagenase clostridium histolyticum CCH in the days or weeks prior to presentation.
Introduction: Fracture of the penis is a rare urological emergency which occurs as a result of abrupt trauma to an erect penis. Immediate surgical repair is the standard of care and is superior to non-operative management due to excellent long term outcomes. A large percentage of the patients present late for treatment out of fear or embarrassment. We report our series of patients who presented late and underwent delayed repair.
