Urethral diverticulum is a localised out pouching or fusiform dilatation of the urethra. It is an uncommon clinical entity affecting both males and females. Although, the diagnosis could be straightforward in the males, it may present as a diagnostic puzzle in the female because it often presents with non-specific symptomatology and diagnosis may not be easily made with common investigation techniques. Two cases of urethral diverticulum are presented to highlight the aetiopathogenesis of urethral diverticulum.
