Abstract

Type I posterior urethral injuries are a frequently noted but infrequently reported entity in the setting of pelvic fracture. Almost all of these injuries will do well with Foley catheter drainage. However, the urethral integrity as established by admission retrograde urethrography is not an unalterable state and serious septic sequelae may be noted if the evolving injury is unrecognized. We report a case of delayed rupture of a type I posterior urethral injury causing infection of the pelvic hematoma and subsequent sepsis.
