Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Three unique cases of urethral duplication, often referred to as congenital posterior urethral perineal fistulae, are presented. Presenting signs and symptoms, evaluation, and treatment are discussed, and the literature is reviewed. Although labeled as a fistula in the literature, this entity most likely represents a distinct type of urethral duplication. A functional dorsal urethra separates it from the other forms of urethral duplication.
