Penile Paralysis and Prolapse (Priapism) in Horses
  by Robert N. Oglesby DVM

Introduction

Introduction » Causes » Treatment » More Info 

Relaxation of the retractor penis muscle allow the penis to prolapse out the prepuce. Prolonged prolapse is associated with paralysis of the retractor muscle and result in an inability to retract the penis back into the sheath and is medically known as priapism. Prolonged prolapse results in swelling, which can become remarkable and in time necrosis. Paralysis has been associated with the use of acepromazine, poor body condition, advancing age. Early treatment is imperitive if the penis is to be preserved.
