  • Urethral diverticula are sac like dilations of the urethra and are classified as either congenital or acquired. While diverticula are commonly seen in female patients, they are rarely seen in men. The most common etiologies of male acquired diverticula include urethral trauma, stricture, abscess or post-hypospadias repair. We report a case of an acquired urethral diverticula secondary to unrepaired penile fracture and urethral injury and review the literature on the topic.
