High flow priapism caused by perineal trauma is a relatively rare disorder. Early diagnosis represents a mandatory condition for the therapeutic resolution.

We present the case of a 56-year-old male patient with traumatic priapism which was subsequently investigated by contrast-enhanced ultrasound and shear wave elastography. This may be one of the first cases presented in the literature
