Peyronie's disease (PD) is characterized by fibrous plaque deposit in the tunica albuginea of corpus cavernosum, which may be associated with penile pain, deformities, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Its prevalence in Nigeria is not known, but limited numbers of cases were reported in literature. However, improvement in the management of ED has led to an increase in the presentation of patients with ED to physicians; in which during evaluation of such patients, PD has been occasionally diagnosed. This case report highlights the clinical findings and management of a Nigerian adult male who presented with erectile failure with clinical findings of PD and literature review of PD associated with ED.
