Urethral diverticulum in males can be congenital or acquired (secondary to stricture, stenosis). Congenital urethral diverticulae of male urethra are rare. Urethral diverticulum generally located in the ventral aspect of the anterior urethra, though it can be found anywhere from the bulbous to the mid pendulous portion of the urethra. Review of literature regarding their cause, classification, and management is multifaceted and controversial. The symptoms depend largely on the size of the diverticulum. Diagnosis of a urethral diverticulum is often clinical. This is a case report of a large congenital diverticulum in the anterior urethra in a 33 year old male who was successfully treated with diverticulectomy and urethroplasty. Postoperatively there was a marked improvement in the symptoms, with good cosmesis.
