MAN DIES OF THREE HOURS ERECTION DUE TO COVID 19

Commenting on the case, Dr Richard Viney, a consultant urological surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, said it was ‘interesting’.

He said he hadn’t come across any Covid-19 patients with priapism himself.

Dr Viney told MailOnline: ‘We haven’t seen any cases of Covid-related priapism like this and we have dealt with more Covid patients than any other European hospital as far as I’m aware, so this is clearly a rare but explainable manifestation of Covid.

‘In this patient, he had low flow priapism which would certainly fit with microemboli (little clots forming in smaller blood vessels) and this is one of the complications of Covid we see in many other organ systems.’

Priapism also affects men with sickle-cell disease, leukemia (cancer of the blood), or malaria, but can happen randomly without any trigger.

Blood clotting has been reported as a dangerous complication in up to a third of coronavirus-infected patients.

When clots block arteries or veins, the blockages can trigger fatal heart attacks and strokes. They can also lead to priapism.

It is not the first time a Covid patient has suffered from priapism.

An unidentified 62-year-old man from France suffered the painful condition while receiving care in hospital for a severe bout of Covid.

The patient left intensive care after spending two weeks on a ventilator, suggesting he has now recovered from Covid-19.

Doctors at Centre Hospitalier de Versailles in Le Chesnay, an area near Paris, wrote about the man in The American Journal of Emergency Medicine.

Myriam Lamamri, an intensive care doctor who treated the French patient, explained blood clotting was the likely cause.

WHAT IS PRIAPISM?

Priapism is a long-lasting painful erection which can cause permanent damage to your penis if not treated quickly, including scarring and permanent erectile dysfunction.

Priapism can occur in all age groups, including newborns. However, it usually affects men in two different age groups: between the ages of 5 and 10, and 20 and 50.

The condition develops when blood in the penis becomes trapped and is unable to drain.

He further stated that the fire was eventually put off before it could spread to other offices around the building, through combined efforts of the fire service, the police and law-abiding citizens.
