Abstract

Priapism is a pathologically prolonged and painful penile erection, usually unassociated with sexual desire or intercourse. Causes include certain oral medications, although the mechanism for drug-induced priapism is unknown. We describe two cases of priapism attributed to chlorpromazine who have presented within the past two years.
