Median raphe cyst

Last revised by Jeremy Jones on 7 Jun 2023

Median raphe cysts are one of the rarest causes of congenital cysts in the pediatric age group. These cysts are usually solitary and hypoechoic. They may develop in the perineum in any location, including the penile shaft and scrotum. Cysts are generally 2 cm in size on imaging or less than that.

Treatment and prognosis

Treatment options include follow-up in asymptomatic cases. Surgical options are reserved for symptomatic individuals and cosmetic motives.
