To the Editor:
—I wish to report a case similar to the case of Dr. Hazzard (The Journal, May 29, p. 1759). A man 60 years old, was referred by Dr. Louis Burckhart of this city. He had a 6-inch plain headed hat-pin engaged in the urethra, which had been introduced in an effort at masturbation. It was removed exactly as in Dr. Hazzard's case; the point having almost entirely penetrated the penile body, the puncture was completed, the pin drawn through, and the direction reversed to push the head forward and out at the meatus.
