Abstract

We present the first reported case of refractory pediatric priapism treated by intracavernosal tunneling T shunt. A 12-year-old male, with sickle cell disease, presented with 72 hours of painful erection. The patient failed conservative measures including aspiration, injection of phenylephrine, as well as distal shunt procedure. A T-T shunt was performed, as previously described in the adult literature. There was immediate resolution of the erection with no complications. At 1-year follow-up, he reports no subsequent episodes of priapism and normal erections. T shunt with tunneling can be performed in select cases of severe pediatric refractory ischemic priapism.
