A 25-YEAR-old Zimbabwean man has been admitted to hospital after battling an abnormal erection for three weeks.
Medical intervention and consultations with prophets and traditional healers have reportedly failed to heal Tatenda Musariyarwa from Duma township, Bikita in Masvingo.
The bizarre condition is said to have arisen after the man was intimate with his wife, who had returned from a brief visit to Harare.
Musariyarwa has since been admitted to the Silveira Mission Hospital in Bikita for medical attention.
A senior medical officer at the hospital confirmed the case but declined to comment.
Doctors and nurses at the facility have tried a masturbation method on the man to alleviate the problem but had no success.
The man’s condition is classified as priapism, a long-lasting erection that is no longer related to sexual activity. – CAJ NEWS
