Urethral prolapse (UP) is a condition characterized by circumferential prolapse of the urethral mucosa through the external meatus generally seen in girls. Bleeding, dysuria and an asymptomatic prolapsed mass are the main presenting complaints. UP may be confused with many pathologies that can cause genital bleeding or tumor. Conservative management and surgical resection are the treatment options. We present this case due to its rarity, low rate of accurate diagnosis at the first presentation, as well as the presence of only one reported case from our country and to raise awareness of UP.
