Squamous Cell Carcinoma in a Transgender Man's Neo-Urethra after Metoidioplasty

Squamous Cell Carcinoma in a Transgender Man's Neo-Urethra after Metoidioplasty Metoidioplasty is a gender-affirming surgery for transgender men, which creates a neophallus using vaginal mucosa and labia majora. One known complication of this procedure is urethral stricture. We report the novel case of a patient with urethral stricture 4 years after metoidioplasty found to have squamous cell carcinoma in situ likely originating from the vaginal mucosa grafted to the neourethra, and highlight the importance of sending such strictures for pathologic evaluation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Urology Karger

Abstract

Metoidioplasty is a gender-affirming surgery for transgender men, which creates a neophallus using vaginal mucosa and labia majora. One known complication of this procedure is urethral stricture. We report the novel case of a patient with urethral stricture 4 years after metoidioplasty found to have squamous cell carcinoma in situ likely originating from the vaginal mucosa grafted to the neourethra, and highlight the importance of sending such strictures for pathologic evaluation.
