Abstract

We report a case of the complications of a spinal cord injury (SCI) in a 21-year old paraplegic young man alternating between indwelling urethral catheter and a condom drainage. This young man used to remove the urinary catheter and tighten a compress on his penis that acquired ventral penile erosion.
