OBJECTIVE We report a case of strangulated urethral prolapse. METHOD/RESULTS A 62-year-old female patient presents to the emergency department with complaints of a bleeding vaginal mass, pain referred to the vaginal introitus and dysu-ria. After being diagnosed with a strangulated urethral pro-lapse, surgical excision of the prolapsed urethra was performed. Pathologically, vascular proliferation of the angioma-tous type with thrombosis and focal recanolization (Masson) and inclusion of rare muscular fibers were recognized. Her postoperative course was uneventful, without any recurrence or abnormal micturition. CONCLUSION For the treatment of strangulated urethral prolapse, surgical excision has been widely applied with successful results.
