   Case Top

A 38 year old man presented with history of impotence. He underwent Ultrasonography, which revealed presence of a linear echogenic structure with posterior acoustic shadowing suggestive of calcification [Figure - 1], in the right corpora cavernosa. Subsequently, plain radiograph confirmed the presence of calcification [Figure - 2].

   Discussion Top

Peyronies disease is a disease of unknown etiology, in which plaques develop in connective tissue between the tunica albuginea and sinusoids of the corpora cavernosa. These plaques fibrose and later may calcify. Calcified plaques are easily seen on ultrasonography and plain radiography. However to document noncalcified plaques MRI is a good modality.

Other causes of penile calcification are secondary to papavarine injections, systemic bleomycin, end stage renal disease on hemodialysis and metabolic disturbances. Patients with Peyronies disease seek medical attention because of curvature of penis, penile pain or impotence.
