Penile Mondor's disease is a painless superficial induration due to thrombosis of penile superficial dorsal vein. Etiological factors for superficial dorsal penile vein thrombosis include trauma, vigorous sexual activity, pelvic tumors and a distended bladder. Doppler ultrasonographic evidence of thrombotic dorsal penile vein is diagnostic for penile Mondor's disease. Two cases with Mondor's disease of the penis due to brutal sexual intercourse are reported here. The first patient's thrombosis resolved spontaneously whereas in the second one anti-inflammatory and heparinoid agents were applied. The treatment should primarily be based on temporary sexual abstinence, and in case of no response treatment with non-steroid anti-inflammatory agents, local anticoagulants should be administered. Larger series are needed to determine whether initial observation is appropriate for all patients with penile Mondor's disease.
