A parameatal urethral cyst is a rare benign congenital anomaly. Approximately 50 patients with parameatal urethral cysts have been reported in the literature. These cysts are usually asymptomatic. They are recognized and diagnosed in the neonatal and early childhood periods. They are usually less than 1 cm in diameter and occur on the ventral or lateral edge of the meatus. These cysts are treated by complete excision. In this report, we present a nine-month-old boy with an asymptomatic parameatal urethral cyst who underwent surgical excision and simultaneous circumcision.
