Case: We highlight a case of chronic skenitis leading to the formation of Urethral diverticulum. A young nulliparous woman presented with dysuria, intermittent hematuria and a 3cm cystic swelling adjacent to the left distal urethra. Aspiration of the cyst was done initially. Excisional biopsy was followed when it recurred. Urethral diverticulum was revealed when the excisional operation traced up to left distal urethral wall. The cystic swelling urethral diverticulum was completely enucleated. Outcome: The pathology report showed fibrous tissue with cystic spaces lined by squamous epithelium with inflammation, which was consistent with a urethral diverticulum. Conclusion: The presenting symptoms and signs of female urethral diverticulum are often diverse and easily overlooked, we have to keep in mind that cases with unusual age, location and presentation can also exist.
