Urethrocavernous fistula is rarely reported, though should be considered within the differential diagnosis for men who present with urethral bleeding, particularly at time of erection. Ultrasonography with concomitant intracavernosal injection can be considered to confirm the diagnosis. Here we report a case of urethrocavernous fistula in a 48 year old man without preceding traumatic event.
