    about priapism

    This is talking about clitoral priapism:

    "Priapism does occur, but is a rare condition, as is a lack of clitoral erection."

    Does "as is" here mean to define priapism, i.e. priapism = a lack of clitoral erection? My dictionary says "priapism of the clitoris is a rare condition associated with prolonged erection of the clitoris". If it's "prolonged" erection, how can it be "a lack of" erection at the same time?

    Re: about priapism

    No. It means priapism is rare, and so is lack of clitoral erection. They are different things, but they are both rare.
