Urethral haemangioma is a rare benign lesion that can cause significant hemorrhagic morbidity. Although benign in nature these lesions tend to recur and extend further unless completely eradicated by local resection or radical extirpative surgery. We report two cases of urethral haemangioma managed by marsupialisation and direct vision interval ambulatory surgical fulguration. Subsequent urethral closure in the manner of Johanson was accomplished after full control of lesion by this less radical approach.
