Median raphe cysts are hypothesized to originate from a developmental defect of the male urethra occurring as single or multiple cysts in the midline anywhere from the anus to the urethral meatus. The canaliform variety is very uncommon but clinically distinct. Asymptomatic lesions are left untreated; symptomatic lesions may be surgically excised to prevent complications.
