Background: High flow priapism is a relatively rare disease in Central Europe. Making the correct diagnosis and the management of high flow priapism is not well established yet in Hungary.
Case report: In this paper we present the diagnosis and the treatment of two cases of high flow priapism that were treated at Semmelweis University Hospitals (Budapest). We also review the related European Urology Guidelines (EAU).
Conclusion: We conclude that the treatment of high flow priapism needs to be centralized in Hungary in order to make the right diagnosis and to be able to choose the best treatment for the given patient.
