Long considered a disease of elderly women, urethral prolapse is increasingly found in girls, mostly African. It is a rare disease which causes eversion of the urethral mucosa through the meatus. Such pathophysiology, still debated, contrasts with the purely clinical diagnosis in the presence of genital bleeding or vulva swelling more or less painful, and bleeding when touched. Surgical treatment gives excellent results. We hereby give details of our experience across three cases of urethral prolapse supported surgically with good results.
