BMJ Case Rep 2021 Sep 22;14(9). Epub 2021 Sep 22.

Urology, AIIMS Rishikesh, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.

A 66-year-old man, who underwent urethral reconstruction using skin grafts for hypospadias five decades earlier as a 13-year-old child, presented with burning micturition and recurrent UTI. A retrograde urethrogram along with micturating cystourethrogram revealed a bulbar urethral stricture and broad neck distal penile urethral diverticulum. On a cystourethroscopic examination, a urethral diverticulum was seen just proximal to the hypospadiac external urethral meatus with 12-15 hair follicles inside the diverticulum and a 1 cm long mid-bulbar stricture.
