Özet

Urethral foreign bodies are rare urological emergencies and early management is vital. Mostly, the patient with a psychiatric disorder inserts the foreign body himself for erotic satisfaction. In this paper, we reported a case of a 22-year-old male patient who inserted a cotton swab into his urethra.
