Since early reports in the literature, cases with urethral foreign bodies have been extremely variable and interestingly challenging. Various presentations have been reported, including self-insertion for sexual pleasure, assaults, trauma, and foreign bodies migration. Management by endoscopic surgery is usually a preferred option for small foreign bodies. Open surgery is reserved for large objects with difficult access. We present a case of self-insertion of a large urethral foreign body with a caliber of 45F in a young gentleman. Endoscopic extraction of the foreign body was safely successful using combined percutaneous and transurethral cystoscopy.
