Hypospadia

India.  
 

Case report

Ultrasound examination at 36 weeks of gestation revealed the folowing findings:
  • Broadened, bulbous tip of the penis; triangular appearance of the penis
  • Undescended testis; no testicular echos within the scrotum
Color Doppler is a very useful tool for the diagnosis of hypospadia. We can demonstrate a fan shaped urinary jet coming from the inferior part of the penis instead of the tip of the penis.

Images 1,2: Image 1 shows a penis with hypospadia and undescended testis. Image 2 shows a normal penis, note the difference between these two images.
