Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a case of recurrent episodes of foreign body insertion into the urethra, ultimately resulting in urethral defect at the penoscrotal junction. We have decided against treating the urethral defect as it facilitates nonoperative retrieval of the urethral foreign bodies. We present our experience and rationale for the clinical management of this complex patient.
