Coronavirus patient suffers hours-long erection due to blood clots in his penis

https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/local-news/coronavirus-patient-suffers-hours-long-18527050

A 62-year-old man who rapidly deteriorated with symptoms of Covid-19 and was placed on a ventilator in a hospital in France was left with an erection that lasted for four hours.

Doctors had to use needles to remove blood clots and relieve the man's condition.

The man had been in intensive care at the Centre Hospitaliser de Versailles in Le Chesnay for two weeks with a fever, dry cough and difficulty breathing.

While coronavirus is known to cause blood clots in up to a third of Covid-19 patients, this is believed to be the first case in which the clots developed in a patient’s penis.

The man, who is unnamed, had been in intensive care at the Centre Hospitaliser de Versailles in Le Chesnay for two weeks, initially experiencing the typical symptoms of a fever, dry cough and difficulty breathing.

His condition quickly deteriorated, and he was placed on a ventilator.

However, the researchers were shocked to discover ‘previously unidentified priapism.’

Doctors say they are fairly certain that his priapism was triggered by Covid-19, reports the Mirror.

"The clinical and laboratory presentation in our patient strongly suggests priapism related to SARS-CoV-2 infection.”

The case study comes shortly after medical experts revealed that up to 30% of coronavirus patients develop dangerous blood clots.

These clots, known as thrombosis, can form in different areas around the body, including in the lungs.

While the tip of his penis was flaccid, the two chambers of tissue in his penis were rigid, due to blood clots.

Thankfully, the doctors were able to remove the blood from his penis using a needle.

2. Omigod, the poor guy! Luckily, he was most likely unconscious and hopefully didn't feel it.

6. I see my fellow DU-ers had the right reaction.

I know the pharmaceutical advertising warning "If you have an erection lasting longer than four hours" causes a lot of 'hee-hee-hee', it can be very painful...
