Penile gangrene associated with chronic renal failure, is a rare entity. Patients usually have associated diseases like diabetes, hypertension. Gangrene occurs because the dystrophic calcific infiltration causes huninal obstruction. This is an accompaniment of generalized soft tissue calcification and bony abnormality resulting. from secondary hyperparathyroidism. Calcium phosphate product exceeds plasma solubility causing precipitation of calcium phosphate. Medical treatment may maintain the product below precipitation levels. Mortality in these patients remains high due to the severity of the associated systemic illnesses. Conservative surgical treatment is advocated in view of short life span.
