Paraurethral cyst or Skene cysts are rare at any age but particularly in newborns. In infants typically present as cystic formations, raised similar to a dermoid cyst. The treatment is established based on the findings, pathology and the age of the patient may be observational, puncture the cyst or surgical. We present a newborn with acute renal failure secondary to skene’s cysts.

Key words: Skene cyst, paraurethral cyst, cystic formations, dermoid cyst.
