Priapism is a rare clinical presentation in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia. Treatment involves multidisciplinary team efforts of the urologist and haemato-oncologist. We report two cases of priapism: a 20-year-old male with chronic myeloid leukemia who presented with priapism as a component of hyperviscosity syndrome and a 26-year-old previously healthy, non-sexually active male who had priapism as his first presentation of chronic myeloid leukemia, and the role of specialists in the management of these patients.
