OBJECTIVE: To describe one case of syringocele in an adult patient.
METHODS/RESULTS: We report the case of a 26 year old man who presented frequency, hematuria and fever during one year, mictional cystourethrography showed a syringocele. Treatment consisted in endoscopic surgery, with good results in the follow-up.
CONCLUSIONS: The syringocele is a relatively infrequent entity, that is necessary to study in a young patient with voiding symptoms, accompanied or not of haematuria and fever. The diagnosis is based on the cystourethrography, and treatment consisted, usually, in endoscopic surgery.
