One Case of Incomplete Double Urethra

Abstract

Duplication of the urethra within a single penile shaft is a rare anomaly. These can be divided into those that are in the sagittal plane, which is most common, and those that occur side by side. In some cases, the accessory channel is complete, having a separate bladder opening and no communication with the more normal ventral urethra. In other cases, the accessory urethra is incomplete, either ending blindly or communicating with the urethra distal to the bladder neck. We report on a 20-year-old male with incomplete double urethra.
