Dr. Nawaz Ali, Prof. Ak. Kaku Singh, Dr. Kh. Somarendra

Abstract: Priapism is a complication rarely seen in leukemia. We report a 35-year-old man presented with persistent painful erection of penis for more than 13 days at home. The patient underwent immediate irrigation and decompression of priapism by urologist at emergency services of the hospital, which resulted in a flaccid penis later. During hospitalization, peripheral blood smear and bone marrow aspiration confirmed the diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia.
