Paraurethral duct

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 17 Jan 2020

The paraurethral ducts (or Skene ducts) drain the paraurethral glands of the female urethra. There is one duct, draining each gland, on each side, just proximal to the external urethral meatus.

History and etymology 

Skene ducts are named after the Scottish-American gynecologist Alexander Johnston Chalmers Skene (1838-1900) 2.
