Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Megalourethra is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by severe dilatation of the penile urethra. Four cases of congenital megalourethra were seen at Sir Padampat Mother and Child Health Institute, Jaipur, during the last 10 years. Three cases of scaphoid megalourethra had no other associated congenital anomalies and were treat-ed successfully without any complications, while one patient with a fusiform megalourethra had severe associated congenital anomalies and died. These cases are reported with a review of the literature.
