Urethral stricture is a narrowing of the urethra due to scar tissue. It causes obstructive voiding dysfunction and can lead to long-term damage of the entire urinary tract. The probability of therapeutic success is dampened by a high rate of recurrence. Therefore, a careful taking of the patient's history and further diagnostics are crucial for finding the appropriate form of therapy. This review highlights the clinical presentation and diagnostic workup of urethral strictures.
