BUSTO MARTIN, Luis et al. Cyst of the skene's gland: Report of four cases and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.3, pp.238-242. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: To show our experience with 4 cases of cysts of the Skene's gland and a review of the published literature. Methods/results: Diagnosis and treatment of 4 cases of Skene's gland cyst. Conclusions: Skene's gland cyst is a lesion that rarely is treated by Urologists, because it doesn't usually have clinical repercussion, but when it's derived to us we have to make a complete study of the urinary tract to exclude complications or different serious lesions. Surgery is the treatment of choice, making a complete excision of the lesion and repair of urethral injuries. All cases evolved well without recurrence or fistulous complications.

Keywords : Skene's gland; Paraurethral glands; Skenitis; Cyst.
