Full Story w/ Graphic Photo:A man shot through the tip of his penis was left with a lop-sided erection in what is thought to be the first case of its kind ever recorded.
The 28-year-old went to hospital after suffering the bizarre gunshot wound. Doctors did not explain the circumstances behind the shooting - but a leading urologist has said he has seen a similar injury dished out as a drugs-related 'punishment' before.
Medics treated the bleeding from the head of his penis and found an entry and exit hole, suggesting the bullet passed straight through.
The team in New York also noted a wound on his thigh, which an X-ray later revealed was the final resting point of the small bullet.
Doctors who treated the unidentified man at the Lincoln Hospital, in the Bronx, published the tale in a medical case report journal.
They said they believe it is the first recorded case of a penile gunshot wound to the left distal corpus cavernosum in medical literature.
