Urethral diverticula are sac-like dilatations of the urethra that communicate with its lumen. They can be congenital or acquired. In men, urethral diverticula are rare and classified as congenital (true) and acquired, which are associated with trauma, abscesses, strictures, surgical procedures, especially in patients with hypospadias. A clinical case of urethral diverticulum with two stones in a man after complex treatment of prostate cancer with metastasis to the left cavernous body of the penis is presented in the article. At the first stage, the patient underwent endoscopic lithotripsy with biopsy of the wall of the diverticulum and laser ablation of the narrowing of the urethrovesical anastomosis. At the second stage, excision of the diverticulum with urethroplasty was performed. The author team considers this clinical observation to be unusual. Previously, postoperative urethral diverticula with two stones in patients after complex treatment of prostate cancer with metastases to the left cavernous body of the penis were not described in the scientific literature.
