Abstract

The complications of the treatment of penile lesion are wide ranging, urethrocutaneous fistula being one of the less common. This complication affects the ventral aspect of the penis. We present a rare case of urethrocutaneous fistula after vaporization of penile lesion by CO2 Laser. One fistula was at ventral aspect of the penis. A 43-year-old male presented with passage of urine from one opening. He had undergone a vaporization by CO2 laser, 2 times. Urethrocutaneous fistula repairs was performed with biopsy of the edge of fistula site. Squamous cell carcinoma was confirmed. He subsequently underwent a partial penectomy. It is very important that biopsy was performed before vaporization of even small size skin lesion. This case is reported along with a brief review of the literature.
