BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We have seen three cases of penile fracture presenting in diverse ways in our teaching hospital. We want to highlight the difficulties of management when patients present late. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three case reports of young men whose ages range between 22-32 years and who presented at 1 year 6 months, four weeks, and 3 hours respectively, following penile fracture. RESULTS: The patient that presented within 3 hours had immediate exploration and primary repair with good results while the one that presented after four weeks is still being followed up. The patient that presented very late has been lost to follow up after he was told that he would require surgery. CONCLUSION: Early surgical intervention in penile trauma still gives the best result and is hereby advocated. Decision to operate or not should also be based on the empirical finding of size of tear if there is no associated urethra injury.
