Abstract

Syringocele is the cystic dilatation of Cowper's gland. It is generally congenital and a majority of the symptomatic cases (urinary infection, obstruction or hematuria) are diagnosed in childhood. The diagnosis is based on the findings of retrograde urethrography and urethroscopy. Treatment is by urethroscopic incision or marsupialization of the syringocele. Some cases may require open surgery via the perineal approach.
