—Schiftan39 reported 5 cases of papillomatosis of the urethra observed in the last two years in the dermatologic clinic of the Britz Hospital in Berlin. There was one case of multiple papillomatosis of the anterior urethra. In all of the cases there was a history of previous gonorrheal infection.The papillomas were treated by electric cautery. A proprietary cocaine mixture was used as a local anesthetic. In spite of the care in protecting the urethra at the time of treatment, a beginning stricture was noticed while the patient was still under treatment. The prognosis in these cases is poor because of the possibility of malignant changes.[Ed. Note.—Polyps and papillomas of the urethra are not uncommon. They are usually very small and the result of long and tedious urethral infections. They have little clinical significance. In most cases they disappear following treatment
