Priapism is a rare and unusual presentation in Emergency Department of Nepal and is really a challenge for the working Emergency Physicians. In Nepalese context it is a social stigma and is often a pitfall due to possible delayed presentation. A young Nepalese Hindu male presented to our Emergency Department with post coital priapism who seeked help only after ninety-six hours in request of his wife. In limited resource hospital settings with delayed presentation, aspiration and irrigation of corpora cavernosa with heparinized saline had shown good outcome in treatment of priapism without any postoperative complications regardless of prolonged stay in emergency department.
