• Priapism is a rare complication of primary thrombocythemia. In the patient whom we describe, the fibrinogen I 125 scan technique was used to detect ongoing thrombogenesis in the corpora cavernosa, and successful detumescence was achieved by evacuation of an extensive penile thrombus. We review the relevant literature concerning priapism and primary thrombocythemia and discuss the management of this disorder.
