Other chapters consider the pathology of the various congenital malformations of the urethra and penis. This book discusses as well the etiology, pathology, and treatment of various diseases of the urethra, including acute urethritis, stricture of the urethra, periurethritis, tumors of the urethra, and schistosomiasis of the urethra.
