Coronavirus Gives Patient Four Hour Erection

The condition is medically known as priapism, and it has a number of causes. This is the first time we’ve seen it connected with COVID-19, but other reports have indicated that the disease can damage the genitals. The 62-year-old patient was admitted to the intensive care unit at a Le Chesnay hospital with swelling in his groin. Doctors attempted to treat him with an ice pack, but when the hard-on didn’t dissipate they realized that something deeper was going on.

The doctors then got a needle to drain the excess blood from his erection and in the process found that his penis had clots. Similar clots have been observed in other coronavirus patients, but this was the first case on record of them in the penis. They were able to resolve the situation, but issued a warning to other medical teams to look out for COVID-related priapism in their patients.
