INTRODUCTION: Urethral duplication is a rare congenital anomaly with less than 200 cases reported. It predominantly occurs in males and is nearly always diagnosed in childhood or adolescence. It is defined as a complete second passage from the bladder to the dorsum of the penis or as an accessory pathway that ends blindly on the dorsal or ventral surface.
METHODS: We present the case of a 54-year-old patient with incomplete urethral duplication.
DISCUSSION: Urethral duplication commonly occurs in the sagittal plane with one urethral channel lying dorsal to the other. Symptoms vary from completely asymptomatic to urinary incontinence which can lead to a mucopurulent discharge from a low grade urinary tract infection. Other symptoms include double stream (most common complaint) and intermittent urinary discharge.
