|Abstract:||A 53-year-old nulliparous woman complained of terminal pain on urination and bended micturition. Previously, she had been treated unsuccessfully with antibiotics for chronic cystitis. On examination, a mass of approximately a thumb's head-size, was palpated at the left portion of urethral meatus. Plain film of the pelvis revealed stones under the margin of symphysis pubis. Positive pressure urethrography revealed a diverticulum slightly larger than the stones. Transvestibular diverticulectomy and urethrolithotomy were performed without any postoperative complications. In Japan, 38 cases of diverticulum calculi of the female urethra have been reported.|
