Penile duplication: Is it necessary to excise one of the penises
Journal of Pediatric Urology, 07/11/2012
Elsawy M et al. – A 37–day–old boy presented with a duplicated penis. Examination revealed presence of two penises, one dorsally located and one ventrally, a large left inguinal hernia and absent right thumb. Abdominal ultrasound and micturating cystourethrogram showed normal kidneys, a single urinary bladder, and partial urethral duplication with no vesicoureteric reflux. The patient was subjected to a new technique, reconstructing the penis without removal of corporal tissue, and therefore not compromising its size. A satisfactory result was achieved.
