Foreign body in the urethra is a rare condition, which is caused by the placement of a foreign object in the person's own urethra, with different causes, and requires immediate intervention. We present a 16-year-old male case of self-insertion of a pencil into the urethra migrating into the bladder. The pencil was in prostatic urethra and pulled by holding it with forceps endoscopically. Open surgery is usually required for the foreign body in the urethra and bladder. In the appropriate patients, the foreign body can be removed with endoscopic management.
