CELMA DOMENECH, A. et al. Priapism secondary to penis infiltration of bladder cancer. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.7, pp.749-751. ISSN 0210-4806.
Metastasic priapism is a rare entity produced by tumor cell implantation or direct infiltration of corpora cavernousum of the penis. In up to 80% of cases the primary tumor has an urological origen like prostate or bladder cancers. Treatment depends on syntomatology and patients prognosis. Generally, average survival in these patients is poor due to metastasic progression, among 1 to 1 and a half years. We present a case report of secondary priapism for direct invasion of the corpora cavernousum of the penis for bladder carcinoma.
