Hypospadias, Epispadias and Peyronie's disease


Hypospadias is a developmental anomaly of the penis which can involve several variations on the norm. In essence the condition results from the urethral meatus not opening on the tip of the penis, but lower down the underside of the penis glans or shaft. The opening may be a slit or a hole. Associated variations of structure include: 

  • The glans tilted forward (chordee) - not to be confused with frenulum breve

  • A twists in the shaft

  • A flatted mushroom-like glans

  • A smaller than average size

  • A larger than average size

  • A hooded foreskin covering only the upper surface of the glans

More information on hypospadias can be found here and here.

Is a congenital condition where a baby is born with the opening of the penis located anywhere on the top (dorsal) surface of the penis between the glans and the base, or even behind the penis on the perineum (that's between the anus and testicles). 

With epispadias, the penis is usually not completely formed, and the shaft is curved upwards. If the urinary opening is close to the body, reconstructive surgery is advised soon after birth because the bladder may be involved - see bladder exstrophy - and the child may have complete urinary incontinence. It is quite rare - about 1 in 30,000 or so male births. A pediatric urologist should be consulted in any case of epispadias.
