    Penile mycosis leading to penile gangrene is a rare entity. Only 1 case has been reported in an adult.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients can also present with digital ischemia and more rarely penile gangrene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The literature on penile entrapment, strangulation and gangrene is also reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraphimosis

    In untreated paraphimosis, increasing edema caused by vascular and lymphatic obstruction results in ominous sequelae such as penile gangrene, which leads to autoamputation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If left untreated, penile gangrene and autoamputation may follow in days or weeks. 6 Clinical Presentation A patient with paraphimosis often presents with penile pain.[aafp.org] Paraphimosis is a urologic emergency that has the potential for serious penile injury, including gangrene and tissue necrosis, if left unattended for a period of time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Priapism
