The interest of this case lies in the fact that this patient existed with an obstructed transurethral catheter for from August 1952 until May 1953. This must have given him a great deal of discomfort, especially on sexual stimulation. Also, the catheter was never in the bladder and one can only imagine that the thread broke in the process of ï¿½railroading'. The fistula of the urethra must have developed as a result of pressure-necrosis of the urethra by the indwelling catheter. The last point of interest was how rapidly the sepsis cleared up on removal of the catheter, and the rapid healing of the suprapubic wound and the fistula.
