Abstract: Glandular ischemia is an extremely uncommon dreaded postoperative complication of inflatable penile prosthesis surgery that may lead to penile gangrene and organ loss, whose incidence is difficult to determine. We report the case of a 56-year-old male admitted to our department with complaints of cold and painful glans penis after penile implant one month before. A color Doppler examination revealed the normal intracavernosal arteries with no vascularity in the superficial glans tissues. Due to the mild severity of the ischemia, conservative management was suggested, and consisted of oral pentoxifylline and hyperbaric therapy for 10 days, achieving a significant improvement at 4 months of follow-up.
