Fracture of the penis is a misnomer, the cause being rupture of one or both of the tunica albuginea that covers the corpora cavernosa. It usually occurs following sexual intercourse or masturbation. Here we report 2 cases of penile fracture in our institution. Ultrasonography was done which confirmed the diagnosis. In both the cases, the urethra was intact. Exploration with evacuation of the hematoma and repair of the tunica albuginea was done.

Keywords: Penile fracture, penile trauma, corpora cavernosa rupture, penile anatomy, tunica albuginea, eggplant deformity, faux pas du coit, cavernosography
