          Abstract

          Paraurethral or Skene's duct cysts are rare causes of interlabial masses in neonates. The diagnosis of Skene's duct cysts in the neonatal period is based on its location, in relation to the urethra, and the demonstration of transitional epithelium in the cyst wall. The distinguishing features of paraurethral cysts are the displacement of urethral meatus by the mass and a cyst containing milky fluid. Thus, we report a case of a Skene's duct cyst in a newborn which was treated by incision and drainage.

              Skene's duct cyst in a newborn: case report and review of the literature.

              The diagnosis of a rare Skene's duct cyst in a newborn was made based on its location in relation to the urethra and the demonstration of transitional epithelium in the cyst wall. A through urologic evaluation was required to differentiate it from an ectopic ureterocele, urethrocele, urethral diverticula, and benign or malignant urethral and paraurethral tumors. Other uncommon vaginal cysts may be of müllerian duct origin and lined with stratified squamous epithelium or from persistent mesonephric (Gartner's) ducts and lined with columnar epithelium. Many cysts drain spontaneously but if treatment is indicated, marsupialization or simple transvaginal excision usually is adequate.
