Abstract

Apomorphine HCl (Apo) (0.5 mg sc), but not placebo, induced an erectile response (monitored with a mercury strain gauge) lasting 40 min in an impotent hyperprolactinemic patient. Serial blood sampling modified the 40 min erectile response. Prompt detumescence followed by complete or partial restoration of tumescence occurred each time blood was drawn. This observation points to the sensitivity of the Apo-erectile response to experimental procedures subjectively perceived as anxiogenic.
