AbstractA case of urethritis due to a long needle, which was introduced by the patient, was described. Though foreign body urethritis is a well-known clinical entity, it is a rare condition and a review of the literature reveals how varied the types of-foreign bodies which have been introduced within the urethra are. Behind the urge to introduce foreign bodies into the urethra lies an abnormal erotic impulse or a neurotic or a psychotic personality.
