Abstract

Megameatus intact prepuce variant is an unusual anterior hypospadias variant.This type of hypospadias is the combination of widely splayed coronal or subcoronal megameatus, deep glandular groove, and an intact prepuce.There is no chordee with this variant. The over all incidence of the MIP variant is approximately 3 percent (6 percent of anterior hypospadias). Intact prepuce can lead to possible late recognition of this malformation. MIP variant is one of the most technically challenging types of hypospadias to repair. So, recognition is important because of uncommon combination and technical challenge of this malformation. I report a very rare case of Megameatus Intact Prepuce hypospadias variant and reviewed .the relevant literatures.
