Traumatic priapism in a child: evaluation with color flow Doppler sonography

J Urol. 1992 Aug;148(2 Pt 1):380-1. doi: 10.1016/s0022-5347(17)36602-8.


We report a case of nonischemic priapism in an 11-year-old boy that occurred after blunt perineal trauma. Color flow Doppler sonography ruled out ischemic priapism and proved itself valuable as part of the emergency diagnostic evaluation of priapism in childhood.
