We report a case of recurrent priapism in a middle-aged man with a history of sexual abuse who responded to ISTDP treatment for trauma.
ISTDP is an emotion-focused treatment that helps patients overcome self-destructive emotional and behavioural patterns that are rooted in emotional trauma.
These same phenomena are frequently seen in migraine patients,[sup.1] in patients with irritable bowel syndrome[sup.10] and those with bladder spasm or urethral syndrome.[sup.7] All of these problems can respond to ISTDP and related therapies.[sup.11] Moreover, one of us also treated a similar case of a middle-aged man with histories of both sexual abuse and recurrent priapism who had a cessation of episodes during treatment.
