  • Female urethral condyloma acuminata mimicking urethral caruncle. [Journal Article]
    Can J Urol. 2020 08; 27(4):10336-10338.Cheng N, Kirkpatrick G, Fromer DL
  • Condyloma acuminata are epidermal lesions caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) most commonly affecting the anogenital region. Urethral involvement is uncommon, and may mimic other urethral lesions. In this case report, a 62-year-old patient presents with what was believed to be a urethral caruncle and underwent successful resection with the final pathologic diagnosis of urethral condyloma. Th…
  • Urethral Prolapse: A Case Series and Literature Review. [Journal Article]
    J Obstet Gynaecol India. 2020 Apr; 70(2):158-162.Fornari A, Gressler M, Murari JCL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Urethral mucosal prolapse is a readily diagnosed condition and often associated with complications in our series. Proper diagnosis is key to successful, timely treatment. Descriptive studies such as this are important to raise awareness of this diagnosis and improve patient care.
  • Management of urethral caruncle - A systematic review of the current literature. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol. 2020 May; 248:5-8.Verma V, Pradhan A
  • Urethral caruncle is a benign fleshy outgrowth at the urethral meatus that occurs mainly at posterior lip of urethra and is most commonly seen in postmenopausal women. They are typically asymptomatic and are mostly reported as incidental findings during pelvic examination. When symptomatic, they commonly present with bleeding, haematuria, pain, dysuria or a lump. Despite being a recognised condit…
  • Urethral caruncle with intestinal metaplasia: A case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    Urol Case Rep. 2020 May; 30:101114.Hanna B, Hanna A, Wines M
  • A 66-year-old female presented with a urethral caruncle. Histological features of incomplete intestinal metaplasia were reported. Only five previous cases of intestinal metaplasia in urethral caruncles have been reported. The mechanism of this tissue transformation remains unclear but theorised aetiologies include embryological and infective causes. Intestinal metaplasia carries a malignant poten…
  • Urinary tract bleeding from a urethral caruncle mimicking genital tract bleeding. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2019 Feb 25; 12(2)Sonoda K, Kato R, … Tokuda Y
  • A 69-year-old Japanese woman with a post-hysterectomy status came to our primary care clinic. She presented with vaginal bleeding for the past 3 days which had developed after defecation. There was a palpable mass measuring approximately 2 cm on pelvic exam; however, heavy bleeding prevented in-depth observation. CT and MRI scans revealed that the mass was inside the urethral meatus and not in th…
  • Urethral Caruncle Presented as Premature Menarche in a 4-Year-Old Girl. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Pediatr. 2018; 2018:3486032.Gamage M, Beneragama D
  • Urethral caruncle (UC) is a benign fleshy outgrowth at the urethral meatus. It was first described by Samuel Sharp in 1750 and occurs mainly at the posterior lip of the urethra, and the exact aetiology is still uncertain. More often it was seen in the postmenopausal women, and only few cases are reported in young girls. Patients may be asymptomatic and could find this as an incidental finding or …
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging of a Urethral Caruncle and the Pathologic Correlation: A Report of 3 Cases. [Case Reports]
    J Comput Assist Tomogr. 2017 Nov/Dec; 41(6):962-964.Tomita H, Takeyama N, … Hashimoto T
  • A urethral caruncle is the most common disease of the urethra in postmenopausal women. A definitive diagnosis can usually be reached based on physical examination. Cross-sectional imaging is performed when malignant urethral tumor is suspected, such as a urethral carcinoma. No articles have discussed the detailed imaging of urethral caruncles. We present 3 patients with symptomatic urethral carun…
  • Results of surgical excision of urethral prolapse in symptomatic patients. [Journal Article]
    Neurourol Urodyn. 2017 Nov; 36(8):2049-2055.Hall ME, Oyesanya T, Cameron AP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical excision of urethral prolapse is a reasonable treatment option in patients who have tried conservative management without relief, as well as in those who present with severe symptoms. Possible complications following excision include postoperative bleeding and recurrence, and patients must be counseled accordingly. In this work, we propose a treatment algorithm for symptomatic urethral prolapse.
  • Lipomatous nevus and urethral caruncle mistaken for ambiguous genitalia in a female infant. [Case Reports]
    J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab. 2016 Feb; 29(2):233-6.Brasileiro LF, Dias Pereira LA, … Guerra-Junior G
  • We report the case of a 46,XX infant referred at 3 months of age for evaluation of ambiguous genitalia with no palpable gonads. The phallus was replaced by a homogeneous peduncular structure covered by skin, and a second peduncular structure covered by mucosa was located between the labia minora above the urethral meatus and the vaginal opening. There were no associated anomalies, and she had nor…
  • Urethral caruncle in a 9-year-old girl: a case report and review of the literature. [Case Reports]
    J Med Case Rep. 2015 Mar 28; 9:71.Chiba M, Toki A, … Suzuki K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Urethral caruncles are rare in children, and the possibility of malignancy is slight during this period. Biopsy of the mass is not required for diagnosis. It should be indicated only if the mass has other characteristics that raise suspicion of malignancy. In previously reported cases, all of the tumor was removed. However, the trigger of the caruncle in childhood is chronic inflammation. Conservative therapy with steroid ointment should be the core treatment. However, it may be necessary to proceed to treatment because caruncles take a long time to heal. The case that we describe in this report will serve as an example for similar cases in the future.
  • Urethral squamous cell papilloma: Case report and literature review. [Journal Article]
    Can Urol Assoc J. 2014 May; 8(5-6):E364-5.Gustafson P, Fenster HN, So AI
  • Lesions around the urethral meatus in women are common. The differential diagnosis for these lesions is extensive and includes urethral caruncle, urethral prolapse, urethral diverticulum, periurethral gland abscesses and, of most concern, urethral carcinoma. Non-invasive squamous lesions of the urethra are rare and their clinical significance is uncertain. We present a case of a urethral squamous…
  • Urethral caruncle: Case report of a rare acute urinary retension cause. [Journal Article]
    Can Urol Assoc J. 2014 Mar; 8(3-4):E270-2.Coban S, Bıyık I
  • A urethral caruncle is a benign vascular tumour usually originating from the rear lip of the external urethral mea and often observed in postmenopausal women. Urethral caruncle is not included within the list of bladder overdistension causes in women. We present urethral caruncle as a rare cause of acute urinary obstruction in a 41-year-old woman. The case was evaluated with physical examination …
  • Anterior urethrectomy for primary carcinoma of the female urethra mimicking a urethral caruncle. [Journal Article]
    Int Neurourol J. 2013 Dec; 17(4):197-9.Shim JS, Oh MM, … Bae JH
  • Here we report a case of primary carcinoma of the female urethra. A 52-year-old woman presented with a palpable urethral mass associated with intermittent pain that she first experienced a few months prior. Clinical examination showed a urethral mass that appeared to be a caruncle; therefore, simple carunclectomy was performed. However, on histological examination, the mass was revealed to be a s…
