Forty-five men presenting with erectile dysfunction were evaluated through history and nocturnal penile tumescence, Doppler, and EMG studies. Fifteen were classified as having organic and 30 as having psychogenic impotence. Three men had mild hypergonadotropism with low testosterone levels. One had hyperprolactinemia. No case of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism was detected. Six patients who had psychogenic impotence had low levels of testosterone.
