Urologists have told about a 41-year-old patient who has endured the horrific injury twice in five months

Man, 41, breaks his penis TWO TIMES in five months while doctors warn patients with hypermobility with a greater risk of the horrific injury

  • The unnamed man hoped his second injury & # 39; would heal himself & # 39 ;, doctors said
  • He delayed the search for treatment by 10 days, according to a report of his case
  • He revealed that he should have undergone surgery months ago to repair a penis fracture

A man broke his penis twice in five months because of his medical condition, doctors say.

The unknown 41-year-old had Danlos Syndrome from Ehler, a genetic disorder that can cause hypermobility.

The man sought treatment for the heinous injury 10 days after it occurred during sex. Doctors said he hoped it would heal & # 39;

He then confessed to doctors that months ago he had to undergo surgery to repair a penis fracture.


Urologists now claim that EDS patients should be slightly less powerful in the bedroom and use a lot of lubricant & # 39 ;.

Doctors who treated him at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, said the association of penis fracture with EDS has never been described.

Write in Urology Case Reports, they said: & # 39; Based on this case, we suggest men with EDS … who may be at a much higher risk of penis fractures. & # 39;

The man sought help from Johns Hopkins "James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute" with pain in the penis and swelling.

He postponed his visit to the emergency department, hoping for the injury to "heal himself," the team wrote in the case report.


The patient suffered the fracture during sexual intercourse. It is caused when the appendix is ​​exposed to a sharp, blunt force.

Written in the diary, added the team of doctors led by Dr. Arthur Burnett: & # 39; Ultimately, it is unclear whether the patient has sustained his next penis fracture due to erections weakened by the first injury, or abnormal tissue healing caused by his EDS. & # 39;


A penis fracture occurs when the appendix is ​​subjected to a sharp, bone force trauma that can occur during vigorous sexual intercourse or masturbation.

Since 1924, 1600 cases have been registered worldwide – about 16 copies per year, the Telegraph reported earlier.

Researchers noted that in 50 percent of the cases a horrific cracking sound is audible. Four in five male victims lost their erection.


Those who have already been traumatized by breaking their penis are often left with erectile dysfunction and lifelong painful sex.

MailOnline reported about a man from South China who was left in agony after breaking his penis during sex with his wife in April.

Doctors discovered that his penis was in a strange corner and had a swollen shape that made him look like an eggplant.

He was diagnosed with a penis fracture after tearing a spongy erectile tissue called corpora cavernosa.

Blood flows in corpora cavernosa that runs along the penis and makes it difficult during an erection.


The trick to stop penis injuries is to knock very superficially, according to gender expert Tracey Cox.

Keeping your partner close to you using a sharpening instead of a pushing motion will also reduce the risk, she told MailOnline.

He was operated on to repair the fracture and urologists said that his wounds were completely healed & # 39; were at a follow-up appointment.

Since 1924, fewer than 2000 cases have been registered worldwide. In about half of the cases, a horrible cracking sound can be heard.

It is thought that EDS – an umbrella term for 13 different genetic disorders – affects around one in 10,000 people around the world.

Symptoms include hypermobility, stretchable skin, or tissue that easily bruises. In some cases the syndrome can be life threatening.

Penile fracture is not listed by the NHS as a recognized potential complication of the condition.

Dr. Rich Viney, a urologist in Birmingham, told MailOnline: “These are two independently rare conditions, so it's almost impossible to prove a link between the two.

DS EDS usually causes weakness in connective tissue, especially in blood vessels.

& # 39; The corpora of the penis are highly specialized blood vessels, so it is reasonable to assume that the walls of the corpora can be weakened by EDS and therefore more susceptible to fractures.

& # 39; When a recent fracture has occurred, a patient is at greater risk, so in this case the second fracture may be due to delayed healing of his first fracture five months earlier.

& # 39; I think EDS patients should be a little less powerful in the bedroom and use a lot of lubricant. & # 39;

The case report comes after an Indian father broke his penis after his child fell over his erection & # 39; after he jumped on him to wake him up.

The bizarre accident was published last year in the prestigious British Medical Journal Case Reports by doctors in India who revealed that the man had taken Viagra.


The 36-year-old, who was not mentioned, sought help from doctors two days after the unbearable injury.

He complained about his & # 39; distorted & # 39; penis, which was also swollen and caused him a lot of pain.


Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is the name for a group of rare hereditary disorders that affect connective tissue.

Research statistics from Ehlers-Danlos syndromes show the overall prevalence as one in 2500 to one in 5000 people, according to charities.

There are thirteen individual genetic disorders, all of which affect the connective tissue of the body.


Connective tissues support skin, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, internal organs and bones.

Depending on the type of EDS, the defective gene may be inherited from one parent or both parents.

Sometimes the defective gene is not inherited, but occurs in the person for the first time.

EDS can influence people in different ways. For some, the condition is relatively mild, while for others it can eliminate their symptoms. Some of the rare serious species can be life threatening.

There are different types of EDS that can share some symptoms.


These include a greater range of joint movement (joint hypermobility), stretchable skin, and fragile skin that easily breaks or bruises.
