Priapism is defined as persistent penile erection that continues more than 4-h unrelated to sexual stimulation, arising from dysfunction of regulating mechanism of tumescence, rigidity and flaccidity. It is a rare condition with an incidence of 0.7/100,000 men per year, in the age group of 20–50 years. We are reporting the case of drug-induced priapism in a 30-year-old male and managed by aspiration of intracorporeal blood. Hence, initial management of priapism in early hours relieves most of the cases of ischaemic priapism.
