watering-pot perineum

watering-pot perineum

Urology 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 diverticuli develop parallel to the urethra and penetrate the perineum and scrotum, forming draining sinuses; as the Pt voids, infected urine is forced into these tracts, and the urine dribbles from multiple, watering-pot-like pores.
