MARTIN HERNANDEZ, M. et al. Corpora cavernosa lesion by gunshot: Case study and literature review. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.10, pp.1138-1140. ISSN 0210-4806.

Rupture of the corpora cavernosa is a very rare lesion. It occurs most commonly during intercourse. A far more exceptional cause is a gunshot wound; in this case, there are frequently concomitant lesions to other structures. We present the case of a man who suffered a lesion to the corpora cavernosa due to a gunshot and underwent emergency surgery. We reviewed existing literature and verified that the first step in managing a genital gunshot wound is to stabilise the patient, following which we should surgically explore the affected area.

Keywords : Corpora cavernosa; Lesion; Gunshot.
