Abstract: Peyronie's disease is characterized by the formation of fibrous plaques within the tunica albuginea of the corpora cavernosa. It is a frustrating disease to the patient resulting in penile deformity and painful erection and erectile dysfunction. There is mixed response to medical therapy and the numerous surgical options implies no standardized procedure yet. The incidence appears to be increasing but this disease is rarely reported in Nigeria. We present three cases of dorsal and ventral Peyronie's disease treated and followed up for 2 years who responded to surgical and medical treatment with satisfactory sexual life and penile erection.
