Cowper's syringocele is an uncommon deformity in the male urethra that is a distention of the duct of the Cowper's gland. Symptoms attributed to Cowper's syringocele in adults consist of lower urinary tract symptoms. To our knowledge there are no data on acontractile bladder due to Cowper's syringocele. We describe a patient who had acontractile bladder and a Cowper's syringocele. Copyright (C) 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel.
