Abstract

Calciphylaxis, a systemic disorder seen in 1%-4% of patients with end-stage renal disease, is a cause of penile ischemic gangrene. We present a case of successful revascularization surgery for penile calciphylaxis. An arterial bypass to the deep dorsal penile vein relieved the rest pain and stopped expansion of the gangrenous lesion.
