Abstract:   (2349 Views)
We report an unusual case of diphaIlus in a five year old boy. The two organs appeared separately, one orthotopically in the pubic area and the other in the perineum with no urinary meatus. A perineal hypospadias with meatus in the anterior anal verge was also present. The right testis was undescended and the scrotum was mildly bifid. The patient was continent for both voiding and defecation. Micturition was via the hypospadiac perineal meatus under voluntary control. A review of published cases suggests that this may be the first example of complete diphallia with two separate phalli in different locations.
