Krishna Prasad K | Keerthi N [3] | Praveen G P | Amal Abraham

Abstract: Urethral stones are commonly associated with urinary tract calculi and underlying diverticulum or stricture urethra. Urethral stones, however, are rare and account for only 0.3 to 2 % of all urinary tract stones. The present case concerns a 55years male patient who presented to our OPD with complaints of pain in the penis and burning micturition since 1 week. Patient had features of prostatism since 5 months. On examination, whitish discharge was noted from external urethral orifice. Careful palpation of penile region reveals a tender, hard mass of size 3.0x1.0 c. m close to the urethral meatus. Passage of metallic probe per-urethrally confirmed the suspicion of a calculus in urethra. Calculus was removed under local anaesthesia by performing meatotomy and the calculus was the gently detached and removed.
