Median raphe cyst is a rare benign cystic lesion, located in the midline, anywhere between the external urethral meatus and the anus. We report a case of 60 year old male, who presented with a recently enlarging, cystic, mobile, painful, fluctuant swelling in the foreskin. He underwent excision of the prepucial cyst along with circumcision. Histopathological features were consistent with prepucial median raphe cyst. This case is being presented for it’s rare location, uncommon clinical presentation and an interesting mixed lining epithelium on histopathological examination.
