An unusual intraurethral foreign body: a case report.

Abstract In medical literature there are several case reports of foreign bodies introduced into the urethra. Foreign bodies are usually inserted as result of erotic activities, psychiatric disorders and, rarely, in an attempt to evacuate the urine. Diagnosis is based on clinical examination and imaging tests. Endoscopic management is the treatment of choice but, in some cases, open surgery may be necessary. The therapeutic approach should be systematically complemented by a psychiatric assessment of the patient. We report the case a 64-year old man with a personal history of behavioral disorders who introduced an electric wire in his urethra. The patient underwent endoscopic extraction under regional anesthesia. The patient at the time of discharge was referred to a psychiatrist.
