Pseudoaneurysm of corpora cavernosa is rare and its presentation as acute urinary retention has not been reported in the literature so far. We report a 47-year-old gentleman who presented with acute urinary retention. Doppler ultrasound revealed pseudoaneurysm of corpora cavernosa at bulbar urethra region with 2 feeder vessels with turbulent flow inside. Selective internal pudendal artery angiogram was done and two feeder arteries from bilateral pudendal arteries were confirmed. Trans perineal thrombin & fibrinogen instillation and selective coil embolization of left internal pudendal artery were done, leading to complete obliteration of pseudoaneurysm and alleviation of patient's symptoms.
