Retrograde contrast injection fills the penile urethra before subsequently entering the scrotum and exiting the skin. Findings are in keeping with urethro-scroto-cutaneous fistula. 


Micturating cystogram (contrast instilled via SPC)

Persistent urethro-scroto-cutaneous fistula was demonstrated six days after the initial retrograde urethrogram.

Scrotal abscess formed after bilateral orchiectomy and the fistula a further complication. After the initial retrograde urethrogram, a SPC was placed to divert urine but this was unsuccessful six days later with the fistula tract still patent on micturating cystogram.
