Man who felt a ‘crack’ during sex ends up with ‘eggplant deformity’ of his penis

A MAN who felt a “crack” during sex ended up with what doctors called an “eggplant deformity” of his penis.

The unnamed 50-year-old suffered an extremely rare and painful penile fracture.

“The patient was having intercourse with his wife when he felt a ‘crack’ feeling,” the paper published in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports described.

Afterwards he lost his erection, had extreme discomfort, bleeding from his urethra and an inability to pee. 

The man went to the hospital where he lives, in East Java, Indonesia, complaining of swelling over four hours.

During physical examination, doctors found the “eggplant (aubergine) deformity” – a clear sign the penis is fractured.

The penis deviated to the right giving it a curved shape, and images show grotesque swelling.

There was also significant bleeding in the tissues of the penis, giving it a purple-red bruised colour all over, much like the fruit.

It made it difficult for medics to ascertain exactly where the breakage was, given the bruising had migrated all the way to the scrotum.  

Scans showed ruptures in the erectile tissue on the right side of the man’s penis, connective tissue deep in the penis, and the urethra. 

The poor man was taken almost immediately to surgery, which the doctors described in detail in their case report.

The broken erectile chamber was fixed with absorbable materials and stitches, and the two ends of the urethra were tied together again.

To prevent blood from clotting in the scrotum, multiple incisions were made and a drainage tube was inserted. 

Five days after surgery, the man was discharged with a catheter that was supposed to keep for 21 days while his urethra healed.

Doctors said: “The patient returned for outpatient visits on the seventh postoperative day. The surgical wound appeared to be in good shape.

“The patient was seen again on the 21st postoperative day, and the urethral catheter was withdrawn.

“The outcome was considered satisfactory.”

Four months after the incident, the patient was described as “delighted with the outcome”.

He can once again have sex with his wife without experiencing any discomfort, as well as pee.

Although his penis bent a little to the left when erect, it caused him no pain. It’s not abnormal for a penis to curve slightly, as long as it doesn’t cause problems.

Penile fractre, the experts said, mostly occurs during vigorous sex.

The penis comes out the vagina before being thrusted too forcefully into the pubic bone or perineum between the vagina and anus).

A small number of men have snapped their penis during masturbation or by falling out of bed with an erection.

The key three features are hearing a “snapping sound”, swelling and bruising (hematoma).

A doctor previously warned the sex position most likely to cause a penile fracture is reverse cowgirl because couples can be out of sync.

Dr Karan Rangarjan, an NHS doctor and TikTok star, said patients who men who don’t seek treatment are usually left with erectile dysfunction, scarring and a permanent curve for the rest of their lives.
