Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


During a routine physical examination of a term, healthy neonate of Somalian origin we observed an anteriorly located interlabial yellow cyst with visible vascularisation on the outer surface. It caused lateralisation of the urinary meatus without notable obstruction. A Skene's duct cyst, or paraurethral cyst, was clinically diagnosed with spontaneous regression. This is a self-limiting phenomenon of unknown origin that rarely requires surgical drainage in case of urinary obstruction.
