Corpus spongiosum abscess is a rare condition with no case reported as of now diagnosed on ultrasonography (USG). Here, we report a unique case of a 40-year-old Indian male with a 15 days' history of pain and difficulty during micturition. The patient had swelling and erythema in distal 1/3 of the penis. The patient was a known case of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Pain aggravated during micturition, there was no history of any urethral catheterization, trauma, or urethritis. On USG, fluid collection was noted in the corpus spongiosum on the posterior aspect of the distal penile urethra. The abscess was drained percutaneously under ultrasound guidance and was send for culture and sensitivity test. The culture yielded Acinetobacter and the patient was treated with 1 week of intravenous antibiotic according to the culture sensitivity test.
