Case Report

Complete Duplication of Male Urethra: Case Report and Literature Review

PMY Tang, KLY Chung, MWY Leung, KKW Liu


Introduction: Urethral duplication is a rare congenital anatomical anomaly. It can often be associated with other organ system anomalies. Methods: We report a case of a male child with VACTERAL association and complete duplication of the urethra. The associated congenital anomalies and the various different urethral imaging techniques were also described. Results: The child underwent surgical repair of the duplicated urethra and resection of the associated anterior megalo-urethra at age 6. Early post op follow up showed excellent cosmetic and functional outcome. Discussions: We reviewed the literature regarding the embryology of the male urethra. Classification of the different anatomical variants of urethral duplication and their proposed aetiologies were also discussed.
