Penile fracture was treated by early surgical repair of the rent in the tunica albuginea in three patients resulting in restoration of satisfactory sexual function. Review of the literature on penile fracture reveals desirability of early operative management consisting of evacuation of haematoma and repair of the rent in tunica albuginea and urethral tear if present. A comparison of the results of conservative management and surgical repair show that immediate operative treatment is accompanied by significantly fewer complications and shorter hospital stay.
