Buck's

Description

The fascia of penis (Buck's fascia ; deep fascia of the penis ; Gallaudet's fascia) is a layer of deep fascia covering the three erectile bodies of the penis

Buck's fascia is continuous with the external spermatic fascia in the scrotum and the suspensory ligament of the penis.

On its ventral aspect, it splits to envelop corpus spongiosum in a separate compartment from the tunica albuginea and corporal bodies

The deep dorsal vein of the penis is inside Buck's fascia, but the superficial dorsal veins of the penis are in the superficial (dartos) fascia immediately under the skin.
