Introduction: Peyronie's Disease is a deformity of the penis. Surgical procedure options for Peyronie's disease treatment include grafting (curvature >60°) or plication (curvature <60°). This case report emphasizes the curvature degree and therapy options chosen, such as tunica albuginea plication instead of grafting. Case presentation: A 55-year-old male complains about a curved penis during erection. Examination shows penile bending 70° ventrally with ±15 cm length and 2x4cm size. The patient underwent Ducket-Baskin tunica albuginea placation (TAP). Postoperative unbent penis size decrement of ±3 cm, neither pain nor erectile dysfunction felt. Clinical discussion: Tunica plication is usually recommended in Peyronie's disease patients with curvature less than 60°, without an hourglass or hinge if grafting is not available. This technique is more simple, safe, the higher success rate of curvature correction (> 80%), low recurrency, low complication rate of penile hypoesthesia (approximately 10%), as well as low risk for postoperative erectile dysfunction. Conclusion: In our case, the tunica albuginea plication technique gives a good outcome in Peyronie's disease reconstruction.
