ARCH CANAS, Albert  and  GUTIERREZ DEL POZO, Rafael. Penile torsion: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.6, pp.635-636. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report the clinical characteristics and therapeutic options of penile torsion. Methods: We report the case of a male with asymptomatic penile torsion as an incidental ?nding after consultation for other reasons. Results: The patient was treated conser vatively because it was not an important aesthetic trouble and it was asymptomatic. Conclusions: Penile torsion is rare. Surgical treatment is reserved for very important degrees of torsion, symptomatic patients or, when patient feels discomfort with the aesthetic alteration.

Keywords : Penile torsion; Curvature axis.
