This is really an advanced stage of the preceding disease in which seminal losses occur without the knowledge of the patient, as when straining at stool, or by passing off in the urine. It is almost invariably accompanied by an extreme degree of irritability of the urethra near the base of the bladder. The seminal fluid escapes in some cases just after urination in the form of a few whitish drops.

The real character of the discharge can be determined only by a careful microscopical examination.
