ABSTRACT

A foreign body in the urethra is the presence of an object in the urethra. They are often secondary, either to an erotic curiosity, û or to psychiatric disorders. The diagnosis remains clinically aided by imagery. Treatment is most often endoscopic, but in some cases the use of open surgery is necessary. We reported the case of an 80-year-old man with no history of behavioral disorders; a wooden rod was inserted into the urethra to empty his bladder. The care consisted of a meatoplasty under locoregional anesthesia. Upon discharge, the patient had a good urine flow.
