Median raphe cyst (MRC) is an uncommon, asymptomatic benign lesion, that may present anywhere on the midline ridge between the external urethral meatus and the anus. Although they are developmental in origin, they often present in the postpubertal age, aggravated by trauma, and are frequently infected secondarily. MRCs are often misdiagnosed as epidermal cysts, steatocystoma multiplex, and eccrine cystadenomas. They are underrecognized and less than ten case reports exist from the Indian subcontinent. We, herein report a male with an immunohistochemically proven parameatal MRC.
