Leakage of polyester resin from the cavernous spaces of the corpus spongiosum penis (csp) into the terminal part of the urethral lumen was demonstrated in one post mortem specimen. No information was available on service performance or semen characteristics immediately before slaughter. It is suggested that haemorrhage from the csp into the urethral lumen may cause spurting of blood from the apex of the penis at service.
