Abstract: We present a case report of urethral reconstruction with a pedicled anterolateral thigh flap prelaminated with bladder mucosa in sex reassignment. The successful outcome may make this technique worthy to be considered in the secondary reconstruction of urethra in difficult cases. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, no similar case has been previously described.
