Abstract We performed surgery in twenty-four cases of urethral prolapse between 1973 and 1989 at the hospital of Fort-de-France. Urethral prolapse is a benign lesion of the terminal urethra and is predominant in young, 3 to 6 year-old black females. Vulvar hemorrhagic is the most usual initial symptom, and diagnosis is readily made by examination and urethral catheterization. Excision of the prolapsed mucosa followed by immediate muco-mucous suture permits a generally uneventful recovery without prolonged hospitalization.
