Background: Priapism is an uncommon emergent urologic condition characterized by prolonged, painful, penile erection often with no sexual excitement. The disorder is without known cases in approximately 60% of cases. Although, cases of priapism due to known causes are unrelated to psychic sexual excitement, the idiopathic types are believed to be associated with an initial prolonged sexual stimulation. Two case reports illustrating the possibility of such cases being the first presentation of myeloproliferative disorder are thus presented.
