Urethral diverticulum (UD) was first described by Hey in 1805. Two third of UD are acquired and up to a third may be congenital. While UD are more common in women secondary to poor anatomical support of the urethra, it is rarely seen in men. Acquired UD in men may be seen after urethroplasty, after hypospadias repair when flaps are used. We report two cases of acquired UD in male children secondary to catheterization and after hypospadias surgery respectively.
