Abstract

The association of penile fracture with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) has never been described. Our patient is a 41-year-old male with EDS who presented with a traumatic penile fracture, ten days following sexual intercourse. This report recognizes the possible heightened risk of structural penile injury in patients with connective tissue disorders such as EDS and emphasizes a need for a high index of suspicion of occult urethral injury and special considerations in surgical management of these complex cases.
