References on the anatomical course of the neurovascular bundles of the penis in epispadias are rare. We studied the anatomy of the neurovascular bundles in 5 patients undergoing primary epispadias repair and 13 adolescents undergoing correction of erectile deformities. In all primary cases the neurovascular bundles were truly lateral as they ran along the distal and middle portions of the corporeal bodies, and became anterolateral only proximally. The bundles were identified in only 5 of 13 secondary cases and were in the same position as in the primary cases. Knowledge of this anatomy is important to protect these structures from surgical injury in cases of epispadias and exstrophy.
