Erection causes penis to be more vulnerable to trauma in comparison to flaccid state. Specially, during sex, due to over-enthusiasm the erectile tissue and the urethra are more often injured than reported. The injury has been classified according to the involvement of erectile tissue and/or urethra for effective management. During a period of six years, eighteen cases of injury to erect penis managed in our centre were evaluated and we were able to preserve potency and prevent urethral stricture formation in all these patients. The mechanism, patho-physiology and line of management of each type of injury are discussed.
