His mother noticed the swelling while he was voiding. Urethral duplication and megalourethra are rare urethral anomalies. Case Report:
Patients may also present as urinary tract obstruction or chronic renal insufficiency. Both urethras were continent, and there was no complaint of a burning sensation or dribbling of urine during micturition. A year-old boy presented with a complaint of a double stream of urine since birth. The embryological development of UD is uncertain.
There was no history of dribbling of urine during micturition, and both his kidneys were normal on ultrasonography. Most urethral duplications occur in the same sagittal plane and can be divided into either dorsal or ventral. Retrograde urethrography demonstrated two complete megalourethras.
This is the first reported case with the presentation of duplicated megalourethras. His mother noticed the swelling while he was voiding. In , Effmann et al. Retrograde urethrography demonstrated the Effmann type IIA2 urethral duplication with megalourethra in both urethras. External genitalia were well developed.
In our case, we performed a urethroplasty without excising one of the megalourethras. Support Center Support Center. Anomalies of the distal ureter, bladder, and urethra in children: In , Effmann et al. Reference Number:
