Objectives : To assess the results of delayed repair of penile fractures. Methods: The patients presenting with penile fractures constituted study group. Those who have come after 24 hours of sustaining , penile injury are considered as de­layed presentation. Five of the total 7 patients were in delayed group. All the patients were treated by surgical correction. Results: Except for mild wound infection in 2 patients, there were no bothersome complications. The results were as good as with early repair and there was no increased risk of erectile dysfunction in penile fractures. Conclusions: The surgical correction need not be de­ferred in delayed presentation of penile fractures.
