Intraoperative penile tumescence during urological procedure can occur after regional or general anesthesia. It is a rare event but can cause delay or defer of the surgery. Pathophysiology of intraoperative erection is mainly due to autonomic imbalance during anesthesia. Various physical and pharmacological management of tumescence have been tried with variable success and complication. We injected ephedrine 15 mg intracavernous resulting immediate de-tumescence and minimum complication.
