We present a rare cause of urinary retention. Fowler’s syndrome affects young women with painless urinary retention and as there is no known cure, the main concern is to ensure adequate bladder emptying. Our patient went through self-catheterisation for eight weeks and after this treatment her urethral output increased gradually and bladder residual volume was observed as <100-150 ml. Early investigation of chronic urinary retention and appropriate treatment can result in better improvement in their quality of life.
