Abstract:

A pro-inflammatory response in patients with coronavirus disease provokes hypercoagulability and hyperviscosity, following an excessive liberation of acute phase reactants. Thromboembolic complications such as Deep Venous Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism, Stroke and Acute Coronary Syndrome were described from the beginning of the pandemic as possible manifestations of this new virus. Priapism is a medical urgency that demands quick assessment and timely treatment. A case of priapism is presented in a patient undergoing hospitalization for COVID-19. He was treated with cavernosal blood aspiration, irrigated with 0.90% w/v saline solution and intracavernosal injection of the sympathomimetic agent (adrenaline), with favorable response.
