Parameatal urethral cysts are rare congenital lesions of the penis that are usually <1cm in diameter in the paediatric population and do not create any urinary difficulties. Their natural course is either to resolve or to be surgically excised without any postoperative complications. We report a case of a newborn with a parameatal urethral cyst that produced voiding difficulties and was treated by surgical excision.
