PARENTE-HERNANDEZ, A. et al. The paraurethral cyst or skene´s duct cyst in the female newborn. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.1, pp.93-94. ISSN 0210-4806.

The paraurethral cyst or Skene´s duct cyst is a rare congenital anomaly in the female newborn. It appears like a round, yellow or orange-colored cystic mass on either side of the urethral meatus. The reported incidence is 1 in 2.000 to 7.000 female births. The low frequency of the Skene´s duct cyst and the little awareness of it and its benignity may lead to wrong diagnosis that underestimates its incidence. There are authors that agree with surgical treatment of paraurethral cyst to obtain an early resolution, even though a majority agrees to manage conservatively.

Palabras clave : Paraurethral cyst; Skene; Newborn.
