Gonococcal infection is known for complications, if not treated promptly and adequately. Although Tysonitis and Tyson's abscess are mentioned in textbooks, only few reports are available as complications of gonorrhea. Bilateral Tyson's abscess in acute gonorrhea is a rare entity when compared to other complications of gonorrhea. The patient responded well to treatment. Unless the physician is familiar with this condition, it may be mistaken for periurethral abscess or even as paraphimosis. Hence, this case is reported to alert the physicians.
