A 32-year-old man presented with complaints of pain and sudden detumescence of penis during intercourse. On examination his penis was flaccid but swollen and deviated to the left side with severe tenderness on the right side of shaft. On exploration a diagnosis of bilateral fracture penis with penile urethral rupture was confirmed. Repair of both the corpora and primary anastomotic urethroplasty was accomplished successfully. Foleyâ€™s catheter was removed after six weeks and immediate urethroscopy confirmed complete healing of urethra. At six months the erectile function and voiding was satisfactory. We present this case to highlight the rarity of bilateral corpora fracture complicated by urethral rupture and to review the current literature and itâ€™s management.
