We report a case of acute urinary retention in a 13-month-old boy, secondary to a perforate Cowper俟Q製 syringocele. Diagnosis was established with voiding cystourethrogram, transperineal ultrasound and urethroscopy; definitive management involved endoscopic unroofing of the syringocele and resolution of the patient俟Q製 obstructive signs and symptoms followed. Although novel diagnostic and therapeutic options have been reported, standard urethrographic imaging and endoscopic management is appropriate for the majority of symptomatic Cowper俟Q製 syringoceles.
