   Introduction Top

A 50 year old male patient presented to the emergency room in acute retention. There was a history of voiding difficulty for 20 days, but no hematuria or calculria. He was treated for gonococcal urethritis 3 years ago and a year later he noticed small swelling at penoscrotal junction, which increased gradually. On examination he had a hard mobile swelling measuring about 3cms x 3cms at the penoscrotal junction. A suprapubic catheterization was carried out. Plain radiograph of the pelvis [Figure - 1] and retrograde urethrogram [Figure - 2] were done. Micturating Cystourethrogram done through the suprapubic catheter showed normal urinary bladder with no vesicoureteric reflux. The Ultrasound of urinary bladder and kidneys showed no significant abnormality. Urine microscopy showed a few pus cells. Biochemical parameters were normal. What is your diagnosis?
