Parameatal urethral cysts are a rare pathology reported both in male and in female. The aethiology is not completely understood. Urography, urethroscopy and urethrography were described to diagnose parameatal urethral cysts. The treatment of choice is the complete excision of the cyst. A rare case of acute urinary retention in a 17-year-old woman by a parameatal urethral cyst is presented.
