Doctors report a unique condition of a man where he was left ejaculating out of his anus and urinating feces because of a rare condition.

Reportedly, the 33-year old man did not seek medical help for two years and continued to suffer. However, he only went to the doctor for a checkup when he suffered from testicle pain for five days.

It was then when he told medics he had passed a 'substantial amount' of semen and urine from his anus for two years. The unidentified man also complained of fecaluria, a condition marked by the presence of fecal matter in the urine.

Upon a checkup, the doctors discovered that the man had an abnormal connection between his prostate and rectum that was causing his urine, feces and semen to come out of unexpected places.

This rare medical condition of man was published in the journal Cureus by physicians who treated him at the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Doctors suggested that this medical condition - a rectal-prostate fistula is very rare and is usually the result of surgery or inflammatory conditions such as Crohn's.

The journal reportedly writes that around five cases per million people are diagnosed each year which is equivalent to 300 Britishers.

Some common symptoms reported of this disease are feces and blood in urine, as well as urinary tract infections (UTIs).

However, the team under Frank L. Ventura, a medical student at Internal Medicine, University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, reportedly noted that passing sperm through the rectum is in fact a quite rare symptom.

Doctors report that surgery is required to patch up the tunnel that allows for urine, semen, and feces to get mixed up. Doctors also found that the patient was suffering from the problem after his CT scan showed that his pelvis revealed he had a 'gas-filled structure' linking his prostate and rectum.

Not only this but he was also suffering from a swollen left testicle and a UTI and the hospital conducted extensive tests to ensure that he didn't have tuberculosis and inflammatory bowel disease.

Surprisingly, the anonymous man informed doctors that he has never undergone surgery or suffered any trauma to his rectum.

Doctors then examined his medical history and pinned the problem of him having a catheter inserted two years earlier while he spent three weeks in a coma after taking cocaine and phencyclidine (PCP).

A catheter is a flexible tube that is medically used to empty the bladder and collect urine. It is used on coma patients, those who have problems urinating naturally, as well as before and after surgery. This tube is inserted through the urethra and then inflated. 

Doctors believe that in the case of this patient, the tube was inserted incorrectly and the balloon part of the catheter blew up too early. This, unfortunately, left the patient with a tunnel linking his prostate and rectum.

Doctors gave the man medicine to treat his swollen testicle and a surgical fistula was performed to improve his situation. 

During the surgical procedure, surgeons used part of his rectal wall to create a 'flap' to close the tunnel.

Doctors say that had the man not come forward for the treatment, he could have suffered from recurring UTIs, kidney infection, and life-threatening sepsis, according to the medics.

Medics are now taking his case as a warning to the doctors that there can be rare complications after using a catheter and points out 'the importance of provider mindfulness when utilizing seemingly benign therapies', such as catheters.
