Penile gangrene is extremely rare. It spreads very rapidly to surrounding structure and have high mortality rate. Its aetiology can be infectious, traumatic or vasculogenic. Precipitating factors can be elicited with careful history and examination. Its management depends upon clinical presentation, which includes serial debridement, partial or total penectomy and treatment of underlying pathology. Here, we are reporting three cases of penile gangrene presented in emergency, one of which was managed by total penectomy, and other two by active debridement with supra-pubic catheter.
