Tuberculosis of the male urethra and corpora cavernosa is discussed and 3 patients with this rare condidtion are presented. These patients were among 63 patients who presented with a urethral stricture during the past 2 yr. The diagnosis was based primarily on histological appearance and treatment consisted of a combined medical and surgical approach, viz. streptomycin, PAS, INH with or without rifampicin; urinary diversion and drainage of pus (if any); initial stage I urethroplasty began after control of infection and stage II urethroplasty began after 18-20 months.
