Medical Word of the Day: pneumaturia

Pneumaturia: passage of gas or air from the urethra during or after urination.

From pneumo, Greek, meaning air or lung (in this case it would be air) and uria, also Greek, meaning urine. There is something wrong with your urinary system (like a fistula) if there is air present when you pee.
