Priapism in Type II Diabetes Mellitus, a Case Report

Priapism in type II diabetes mellitus is an uncommon event.   A case of this condition in an adult male is presented.  More common precipitating factors such as use of medications such as sildenafil or use of an intracarvenosal vasodilator was absent, although diagnostic investigations postulated the cause as thrombotic factors in type II diabetes.  A cavernosal-spongiosal shunting procedure was performed and a cystofix inserted to divert urinary flow.  However, due to the late presentation of the priapism and the concurrent infection, much erectile tissue was damaged and normal function of the organ could not be restored.
