Abstract

Primary urethral malignancies are rare in clinical practice and elderly female are prone to suffer. The cause of PUC is unknown and may be related to long-term chronic inflammation, infection, sexual intercourse, pregnancy and irritation of the urethra. Incipient symptom of PUC is not distinctness and can easily lead to misdiagnosis. The final diagnosis relied on transvaginal ultrasound-guided mass biopsy and urethral biopsy. Early tumor treatment is mainly based on surgical resection. For advanced tumors, it is recommended to adopt a comprehensive treatment plan combining surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy We report this case with the aim of bringing attention to that primary urethral cancer progresses rapidly and has a poor prognosis, it is urged to call for a need of diagnostic and treatment specification.
