Figure 0001: X-ray showing urethral foreign body (nail clippers).

Mentions: A 37-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic with complaints of difficulty in voiding. The patient was mentally retarded. He had self-inserted nail clippers into his urethra four days earlier. He was receiving psychiatric treatment. Urological examination of the glans penis and penile skin was forced. The proximal penile urethra was swollen due to the intraurethral foreign body. The base of the penis was firm and a painful mass with smooth borders was detected upon palpation. Approximately 5 x 1 cm in size with smooth contours, the nail clippers with sharp distal tip, was detected in the proximal penile urethra in pelvic X-ray (Fig. 1).
