Patient underwent functional ultrasound 2D/3D of urethra with and without micturition. Transperineal approach and classic penile ultrasound was performed.
B-mode US study of the penis while micturating revealed cystic widening of urethra at two levels caused by multilevel urethral strictures as a complication of hypospadias reconstruction. Within the urethral lumen there are irregular echoes, a result of recurrent urethra infections.
