Peeing with a fish can be hazardous to your health!

A 2cm long fish apparently found it's way into the penis of a 14-year-old boy from India in a bizarre medical case.

The patient was admitted to hospital with complaints of pain, dribbling urine and acute urinary retention spanning a 24-hour period. According to the boy, the fish slipped into his penis while he was cleaning his aquarium at home.

Professor Vezhaventhan and Professor Jeyaraman, who treated the boy and later wrote a paper on the case, explained: "
While he was cleaning the fish tank in his house, he was holding a fish in his hand and went to the toilet for passing urine. When he was passing urine, the fish slipped from his hand and entered his urethra and then he developed all these symptoms."
Hmmm, that story sounds rather fishy.

It does sound awfully fishy. That said: (hopefully not a common aquarium fish)

In related news, I now have a search for "amazon penis fish" on my Google Permanent Record™.

Yes, it does sound fishy.
As I recall, the Candiru is not Betta genus. I think the guy had a weird fish fetish.
