Firearms injuries to the penis are rarely seen but require immediate investigation to assess the extent of injury inorder to prevent complications such as erectile or/and urination dysfunction. Although the treatment is usually performed by surgical intervention, few patients can be followed conservatively. Herein, we present a case of a gunshot injury treated without any surgical intervention, in which a pellet was detected in the corpus cavernosum of penis and did not cause any symptoms of penile fracture. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature regarding penile gunshot injury in which a pellet was retained in the corpus cavernosum and was treated without surgery. 

Ateşli silah ile penis yaralanmaları oldukça az görülmektedir fakat sertleşme ve/veya işeme bozukluğu gibi komplikasyonları önlemek için, yaralanmanın hemen ve daima kapsamlı bir şekilde değerlendirilmesi gerekmektedir. Tedavi genellikle cerrahi bir müdahale ile olsa da bazı nadir olgular konservatif olarak da takip edilebilmektedir. Sunduğumuz bu olguda, ateşli silah yaralanması sonrası penis korpus kavernosum içinde kalan, herhangi bir penil fraktür kliniği oluşturmayan ve cerrahi bir girişim gerektirmeden tedavi edilen saçma tanesi olgusu sunulmuştur. Bildiğimiz kadarı ile ateşli silah yaralanması sonrası penis korpus kavernozum içinde kalan ve cerrahi bir müdahaleyi gerektirmeden tedavi edilen bu saçma tanesi literatürdeki ilk olgu niteliği taşıması bakımından dikkat çekicidir.
