Abstract

Erkek kaplumbağalarda phallus (penis) prolapsusu nadiren görülür. Penis çiftleşme, travma veya ölüm haricinde kloakanın ventral yüzeyinde retrakte bir şekilde uzanır. Çalışma materyalini erkek Yumuşak Kabuklu Fırat Kaplumbağası oluşturdu. Klinik olarak phallus’ta nekrotik alanlar gözlendi. Sağaltımda lokal anestezi ve analjeziyi takiben phallus’un kloaka yerleştirilmesi gerçekleştirildi. Bu olgu Yumuşak Kabuklu Fırat Kaplumbağasında bildirilen ilk penis prolopsusu olgusudur.

Abstract

 Male tortoises are occasionally presented with a prolapsed phallus (penis). The penis is retracted except during mating, trauma, or death; it lies in the ventral floor of the cloaca. Male Euphrates soft-shelled turtle constituted the study material. Clinically, necrotic areas in the phallus were observed. After the local anesthesia and analgesia, phallus was inserted into the base of cloaca. This case is the first phallus prolapse case of the male Euphrates soft-shelled turtle.
