Abstract

Priapism is a pathologic erection lasting >4 hours that is unrelated to or persists beyond sexual stimulation. Priapism is rare in children, and rarely reported in infants. Although a small number of cases have been reported in neonates, even fewer have been reported in infants outside of the neonatal period. Due to its rarity and poorly understood pathophysiology, the diagnosis and management of priapism in infants is challenging. We report a rare case of idiopathic non-ischemic priapism in a 9-month-old highlighting some of the challenges in diagnosis and management of priapism in this age group.
