A urethrocutaneous fistula is an epithelialized track between the urethra and skin and can be a complication of urethral surgery. Fistula tracts can develop either early after surgery or as a delayed complication. The authors of this case describe a patient who developed a ventral urethrocutaneous fistula approximately 2 years after surgical repair for a penile fracture as a result of sexual intercourse. In the setting of penile fracture, the authors specify that urethral injury must be a concern both during the pre-operative and intra-operative evaluation. Because the initial evaluation did not include a retrograde urethrogram it is impossible to accurately know the etiology of the urethrocutaneous fistula. This case attempts to highlights the importance of urethral evaluation during the initial work-up of a penile fracture.
