SOARES, Mario Jorge et al. Strangulated urethral prolapse: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.8, pp.922-924. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report a case of strangulated urethral prolapse. Method/Results: A 62 year old female patient presents to the emergency department with complaints of a bleeding vaginal mass, pain referred to the vaginal introitus and dysu-ria. After being diagnosed with a strangulated urethral pro-lapse, surgical excision of the prolapsed urethra was performed. Pathologically, vascular proliferation of the angioma-tous type with thrombosis and focal recanalization (Masson) and inclusion of rare muscular fibers were recognized. Her postoperative course was uneventful, without any recurrence or abnormal micturition. Conclusion: For the treatment of strangulated urethral prolapse, surgical excision has been widely applied with successful results.
