Urethroperineal or scrotal fistula is a known complication of a periurethral abscess.
Differential diagnostic considerations in this case included the hypospadiac form of urethral duplication, urethroperineal fistula, and iatrogenic fistula development related to the TURP.
Congenital urethroperineal fistula is manifested by a normal penile urethra with a second ventral channel arising from the prostatic urethra and opening onto the perineum (Figure 3).
However, with congenital urethroperineal fistula, the dominant and normal urethra is dorsal in position and exits the penis, while a small, irregular channel extends posteriorly from the prostatic urethra onto the perineum.
While both are rare entities, differentiation of the hypospadiac form of urethral duplication and congenital urethroperineal fistula is critical for treatment planning.
About 31 women (37%) had labor complications in the form of perineal or urethroperineal lacerations.
