FINDINGS

Figure 87A: Axial CT scan of the pelvis shows a cartridge of a pen with a proximal metallic component and an air- and ink-filled lumen of the rest of the foreign body (arrow). A pen was removed and a portion of a plastic spoon was also removed from the urethra. Figure 87B: A retrograde urethrogram performed after the foreign body removal demonstrates mild narrowing and irregular lumen of the mid and distal penile urethra (arrows), compatible with recurrent history of foreign body placement.
