Özet

Ischemic gangrene of the glans penis following surgical correction of Peyronie's disease is a very rare condition. Ischemic gangrene is a rare phenomenon due to rich vascular collateral circulation in the penis, but serious complications can occur in patients with vascular insufficiency. There is no standardized method among treatment options. We herein report a patient who was operated due to Peyronie's disease and developed ischemic gangrene of the glans penis in the postoperative period.
