PMID:  2517755     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of stone formation within a female urethral diverticulum is presented together with a brief literature review. Clinical diagnosis may be suspected if a stony hard mass is palpable on the floor of the urethra. The definitive diagnosis depends upon a plain X-ray film and a retrograde positive pressure urethrogram. Surgical excision of the diverticulum together with the calculus is best performed by the vaginal route.
