Diverticulae of the male urethra are relatively rare entities and review of literature regarding their cause, classification, and management is multifaceted and controversial. Acquired anterior urethral diverticuli without adequate or intact corpus spongiosum and those with well-defined thick walls are best treated oy open surgical techniques. [1] A micturating cystourethrogram (MCU) and ultrasonography (USG) to determine the presence of surrounding tissue (corpus spongiosum) and the wall thickness plays a major role in determining the management. Thin walled and intact diverticula's can be treated by visual urethral urethrotome. [2]
