Types (Hypospadias)

Drawing of the different types of hypospadias, in which the urethra is either absent or divided on the ventral side of the penis at different distances. With increasing severity of the malformation, the orifice shifts from the glans to the perineum, which is shown from the top on the left side to the bottom on the right side. The common sign of hypospadias is a prepuce that is deformed on the dorsal side like a cape and devided on the ventral side. On the top of the left side a normal situation is visible for comparison. In the middle of the top row an anterior type of hypospadia and on the right side an intermediate type is shown. The bottom row shows from left to right a penoscrotal, a scrotal, and a perineal hypospadias.
