Cysts Of The Excretory Duct Of The Skene’S Glands

(Skene cyst)

Cysts of the excretory duct of the Skene’s glands (Gll. Paraurethrales) develop adjacent to the distal urethra. Sometimes they cause perineal discharge, dyspareunia, a urinary obstruction or abscesses.

The Skene’s glands (Periurethral- or Skene’s gland) are located next to the distal urethra. Cysts arise if the duct is installed, usually due to an inflammation of the gland. They occur mainly in adults. The cysts can abszedieren or obstruction of the urethra and lead to recurrent urinary tract infections.

Cysts arise if the duct is installed, usually due to an inflammation of the gland. They occur mainly in adults. The cysts can abszedieren or obstruction of the urethra and lead to recurrent urinary tract infections. Most cysts measuring <1 cm and are asymptomatic. Some are larger and cause dyspareunia. The first symptoms may relate to the urine flow (z. B. delayed Ingangkommen, trickling, RT), or urinary tract infections. Abscesses are painful, swollen, reddened and sensitive to pressure, but usually do not cause fever. Diagnosis Clinical Investigation The diagnosis is made clinically in general. Most symptomatic cysts and abscesses are palpable in addition to the distal urethra. But since they are clinically indistinguishable from a diverticulum of the distal urethra, to differentiate an ultrasound or cystoscopy is required. Treatment Surgical excision in symptomatic cyst cysts that cause symptoms are excised. Abscesses must first with oral broad-spectrum antibiotics (eg. As cephalexin, 500 mg every 6 hours for 7-10 days) are treated and only then excised or marsupialized.
