Iatrogenic hypospadias repair caused by long?term catheterization in a patient with neurogenic bladder: a case report


Hulya Ozturk

Long-term urethral catheterization may cause complications such as urinary tract infection, bladder and peritoneal perforation, bladder spasms, catheter-associated penile fracture, urethral stricture, and parafimosis. In addition to all these complications, long-term urethral catheter-induced iatrogenic hypospadias, as in our case, is a rare condition.
