A 2 years old Polo Horse was admitted with a severe swelling of the prepuce and paraphimosis. Paraphimosis occurs most frequently from preputial edema. In stallions is an emergency demanding immediate, aggressive medical treatment. The owners and the veterinarian suspected of an acute trauma. Immediate diagnosis of preputial hematoma was performed by ultrasonography. The ultrasonography at the clinical examination allows us to differentiate conditions to select the appropriate treatment. A successful treatment is totally related to reduce edema. This report describes the history, clinical findings, management and progression of a preputial hematoma with paraphimosis in a 2 year old Polo horse.
