Penile fracture is a rare lesion that occurs almost exclusively during erection. This lesion may be associated with rupture of the urethra in 20-30% of the cases. We present two cases of a 41-year-old man with a penile fracture complicated by a urethral rupture and a 33 year old man with a penile fracture without urethral rupture. Subsequent repair was done in both cases. For diagnosis it is necessary in most cases a correct anamnesis and physical examination. Early surgical approach and closure of the albuginea´s lesion and repair of the urethral lesion is the best way of treatment.
