Urethral Diverticulum

Urethral diverticulum is a condition in which a variably sized “pocket” or outpouching forms next to the urethra. Because it most often connects to the urethra, this outpouching repeatedly gets filled with urine during the act of urination thus causing symptoms.

Who usually gets urethral diverticulum?

It is much more common in females then in males and usually appears between the ages of 40 and 70. Occurrence in children is extremely rare in the absence of prior urethral surgery.

What causes urethral diverticulum?

Has recently been attributed to repeated infections and/or obstruction of the periurethral glands with subsequent obstruction eventually evolving into Urethral Diverticulum.
