Median Raphe Cyst


Median raphe cysts are located in the dermis in the course of the raphe (between the meatus of the urethra and the anus). There is no connection to the urethra or epidermis; the cyst results from a defective closure of the raphe. The cyst wall is lined with urothelium, squamous epithelium, or glandular epithelium.

Treatment of Median Raphe Cysts

Disturbing or symptomatic cysts are excised.
