Penile fracture is a rupture of the tunic albugenia of corpus cavernosum that occurs when the penis is erect. The fracture can also involve the corpus spongiosum and urethra. We report a case of a 35 year old man who presented with acute penile pain, penile swelling with clicking sound during intercourse and the inability to pass urine. On exploration we found bilateral partial rupture of the corpus cavernosum with complete urethral and corpus spongiosum disruption. At 1 year follow up patient was having normal erection and voiding function. Penile fracture's emergent management preserves erectile and voiding function.
