Abstract

Abscess formation secondary to chronic urethritis of the posterior male urethra caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae has become an atypical and rare urological complication. Periurethral abscess formation has been reported to be associated with gonococcal infections, but in such rare cases a delay in the diagnosis of gonococcal infection seems to have been the cause for this periurethral complication. A case with a primary diagnosis of periurethral abscess with N. gonorrhoeae infection is reported--successful treatment included transurethral incision and antibiotic therapy.
