Hypospadias is a congenital defect of the penis, with an arrest in penile development. It is the most common congenital malformation of the penis and presents on a spectrum of severity. Epidemiological studies demonstrate a rise in the incidence of hypospadias, though the etiology of hypospadias is not fully elucidated. The surgical management of hypospadias is a common source of discussion amongst pediatric urologists and a wide array of surgical approaches have been developed to correct hypospadias.
