This review summarises the principles for diagnosing and treating acute urological trauma. Renal trauma can be life threatening, although most injuries are self-limiting. Development in imaging and non-operative measures allows for a more conservative and nephron-sparing approach. Pelvic fracture urethral injury is often associated with multiple injuries. Strategy for intervention depends on whether the injury is partial or complete, anterior or posterior. Penile fracture is a rare but acute urological condition. Surgical treatment is necessary to minimize risk of complications. If handled accordingly, the functional outcome is good.
