Abstract

Male genital emergencies relating to the penis and scrotum are rare and require prompt investigation and surgical intervention. Clinicians are often unfamiliar with the management of these conditions and may not work in a specialist centre with on‐site expertise in genitourethral surgery.

Priapism requires prompt assessment and treatment and these consensus statements provide guidance for UK practice.
