Watering Can Perineum | definition of Watering Can Perineum by Medical dictionary
Watering Can Perineum
A fanciful descriptor for a complication of trauma to the urethra and covering structures—as seen in urethral surgery, in which multiple fistulas associated with inflammatory strictures and diverticula develop parallel to the urethra, penetrating the perineum and scrotum, forming draining sinuses. As the patient voids, infected urine is forced into these tracts, and urine dribbles from multiple, watering-pot-like pores
