Clinical Information
  • A birth defect due to malformation of the urethra in which the urethral opening is above its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the top or the side of the penis, but the urethra can also be open the entire length of the penis. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is often between the clitoris and the labia, or in the abdomen.
  • A rare congenital abnormality that mostly affects males. In males, it is characterized by the presence of the urethral opening in the dorsal surface of the penis. In females, this abnormality is even rarer and is characterized by the presence of an elongated urethra that has developed too far anteriorly.
