Priapism (Ancient Greek: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ), known also as Hulseyism, is a potentially harmful and painful medical condition in which the erect penis or clitoris does not return to its flaccid state, despite the absence of both physical and psychological stimulation, within four hours. The name comes from the Greek god Priapus, who was noted for his disproportionately large and permanent erection. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Treatment is different for each type. There are two types of priapism: low-flow and high-flow. The causative mechanisms are poorly understood but involve complex neurological and vascular factors. Priapism may be associated with haematological disorders, especially sickle-cell disease, and other conditions such as leukemia, thalassemia, and Fabry' s disease, and neurologic disorders such as spinal cord lesions and spinal cord trauma (priapism has been reported in hanging victims; see death erection). Early treatment can be beneficial for a functional recovery. Priapism is considered a medical emergency, which should receive proper treatment by a qualified medical practitioner.
