A 2 cm fish miraculously found it’s way into the penis of a 14-year-old boy from India in another bizarre medical case.
The patient was admitted to hospital with complaints of pain, dribbling urine and acute urinary retention spanning a 24-hour period, claimed that a fish slipped into his penis while he was cleaning his aquarium at home. According to the reports, the fish found it’s way into the boy’s penis while he was passing urine while holding the fish in one hand. The fish slipped from his hand and swam the wrong direction when it leap upstream into his bladder.
Professor Vezhaventhan and Professor Jeyaraman, who treated the boy and later wrote a paper on the case, explained: “While he was cleaning the fish tank in his house, he was holding a fish in his hand and went to the toilet for passing urine. When he was passing urine, the fish slipped from his hand and entered his urethra and then he developed all these symptoms.”

After doctors pin-point the exact location of the fish in the boy’s bladder, they used a technique known as cystourethroscopy to insert a special set of forceps down the boy’s penis. After many painful attempts the tiny fish was finally removed. The fish, which is thought to be a small member of the Betta genus, measured 2 cm long and 1.5 cm wide.
The boy was later admitted into counseling to help him overcome any trauma.
