Abstract

Urethral duplication is a very rare congenital malformation that is divided into complete and incomplete forms. Most cases of the complete type are diagnosed in the neonatal period or early childhood with the presentation of double urinary streams or urinary dribbling. Incomplete urethral duplication on the other hand can be missed as they can be asymptomatic or present with intermittent discharge from the abnormal urethral opening. We report a case of incomplete urethral duplication simulating epispadias in a male newborn.

Key words: urethral duplication, incomplete urethral duplication, epispadias
