Abstract


Congenital scaphoid megalourethra is a very rare congenital anomaly of the anterior urethra in males. Here, a case of scaphoid megalourethra and posterior urethral valves is presented. A one and half year old male child came to us with complaints of ballooning at the tip of penis since birth. Micturating cystourethrogram showed a dilated glanular urethra. The patient underwent a Nesbitt’s longitudinal reduction urethroplasty with a single-staged, single layered repair. Post-operatively, the child passed a healthy stream of urine without straining.
