Abstract

It has been shown that persistent penile irritation and purulent discharge from around the urethral meatus may rarely be caused by inflammation of tiny tubular structures previously known as paraurethral ducts. They appear to be rare embryologic remnants which can be involved in the venereal disease complex. Local excision is the appropriate treatment if symptoms are not responsive to antibiotic therapy.
