PURPOSE: Proximal hypospadias represents 20% of hypospadias cases and are considered to have a higher incidence of associated urological, non-urological, developmental, Disorders of Sex Development and chromosomal anomalies. The aim of this study was to compare the occurrence of associated anomalies in boys with proximal hypospadias and undescended testis with boys with proximal hypospadias and descended testes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of 69 boys who underwent a two-stage hypospadias repair for proximal hypospadias in a single institution over an eleven-year period (2001-2011) were reviewed. Collected data included; demographics, birth history, associated urological and extra-urological anomalies, karyotype analysis and gonad palpability. Patients were divided into two groups: Group 1 - patients with proximal hypospadias and undescended testis and Group 2 - patients with proximal hypospadias and descended testes. Statistical analysis was performed using a 2-tailed Fischer's Exact Test. RESULTS: There were 17 (25%) patients in Group 1 (median age 2.2yrs) and 52 (75%) in Group 2 (median age 2yrs). Children in Group 1 had a higher incidence of XY Non Dysgenetic Testicular DSD (8 in Group 1, 11 in Group 2, p=0.06), premature birth (9 in Group 1, 10 in Group 2, p=0.01) and intra-uterine growth restriction (8 in Group 1, 8 in Group 2, p=0.01). CONCLUSIONS: There is a significant association of prematurity and intra-uterine growth restriction with proximal hypospadias and undescended testis. In addition because of the high incidence (28%) of an underlying Disorder of Sex Development male infants with proximal hypospadias should have a multidisciplinary evaluation.
