Özet

Paraurethral or Skene's duct cyst is a rare cause of introital mass in neonates. We report two female newborn cases with paraurethral cysts associated with vaginal bleeding and breast enlargement. These associations raise the question of whether maternal estrogens play a role in the development of paraurethral cysts.
