Observations made on 18 cases of acquired urethral diverticula in male paraplegics are summarised. All the diverticula were situated in anterior urethra, nearly 60 percent of them near penoscrotal junction. Clinical diagnosis is easy once condition is suspected and can be confirmed by urethrography. Urethrography with panendoscopy prior to surgery helps in preoperative planning of the surgical procedure, selection of which depends on the size of the defect in urethra. Two stage procedures like exteriorisation of the urethra, packing of the diverticula and suprapubic urinary diversion may largely be avoided by careful preoperative preparation of these patients. Postoperative problems and results have been discussed.
