A birth defect due to malformation of the URETHRA in which the urethral opening is below its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the ventral surface of the PENIS or on the PERINEUM. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is in the VAGINA.
A developmental defect in which a TESTIS or both TESTES failed to descend from high in the ABDOMEN to the bottom of the SCROTUM. Testicular descent is essential to normal SPERMATOGENESIS which requires temperature lower than the BODY TEMPERATURE. Cryptorchidism can be subclassified by the location of the maldescended testis.

True hermaphroditism associated with microphthalmia. (1/205)

A 4-year-old boy with an undescending left testis, penoscrotal hypospadia and bilateral microphthalmia was admitted to our hospital. Chromosome analysis revealed a karyotype of 46, XX del(x)(p2 2,31) and the sex-determining region of the Y chromosome (SRY) was negative. The right testis was located in the scrotum and a left cystic ovary-like gonad, a salpinx and a unicorn uterus were found in the left inguinal canal. Histologically the gonad was an ovotestis in which primordial follicles covered infantile seminiferous tubules. Microphthalmia is observed in some congenital syndromes caused by interstitial deletion of the X chromosome. This case suggested that the short arm of the X chromosome was involved in the differentiation of the gonad. Very closely located follicles and infantile seminiferous tubules indicated that induction of meiosis in the fetus was controlled by the local microenvironment in follicles and seminiferous tubules, and not by the systemic hormonal condition.  (+info)

International trends in rates of hypospadias and cryptorchidism. (2/205)

Researchers from seven European nations and the United States have published reports of increasing rates of hypospadias during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Reports of increasing rates of cryptorchidism have come primarily from England. In recent years, these reports have become one focus of the debate over endocrine disruption. This study examines more recent data from a larger number of countries participating in the International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Monitoring Systems (ICBDMS) to address the questions of whether such increases are worldwide and continuing and whether there are geographic patterns to any observed increases. The ICBDMS headquarters and individual systems provided the data. Systems were categorized into five groups based on gross domestic product in 1984. Hypospadias increases were most marked in two American systems and in Scandinavia and Japan. The increases leveled off in many systems after 1985. Increases were not seen in less affluent nations. Cryptorchidism rates were available for 10 systems. Clear increases in this anomaly were seen in two U.S. systems and in the South American system, but not elsewhere. Since 1985, rates declined in most systems. Numerous artifacts may contribute to or cause upward trends in hypospadias. Possible "real" causes include demographic changes and endocrine disruption, among others.  (+info)

Incidence of congenital malformations in children born after ICSI. (3/205)

The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of congenital malformations in a complete cohort of children born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The medical records were retrieved for 1139 infants, 736 singletons, 200 sets of twins and one set of triplets. The total number of infants with an identified anomaly was 87 (7.6%), 40 of which were minor. The incidence of malformations in children born after ICSI was also compared with all births in Sweden using data from the Swedish Medical Birth Registry and the Registry of Congenital Malformations. For ICSI children, the odds ratio (OR) for having any major or minor malformation was 1.75 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1.19-2.58] after stratification for delivery hospital, year of birth and maternal age. If stratification for singletons/twins was also done, the OR was reduced to 1.19 (95% CI 0.79-1.81). The increased rate of congenital malformations is thus mainly a result of a high rate of multiple births. The only specific malformation which was found to occur in excess in children born after ICSI was hypospadias (relative risk 3.0, exact 95% CI 1. 09-6.50) which may be related to paternal subfertility.  (+info)

Is the incidence of hypospadias increasing? Analysis of Finnish hospital discharge data 1970-1994. (4/205)

Reports suggesting an increasing incidence of male genitourinary anomalies such as hypospadias, possibly related to environmental factors such as environmental estrogen-like compounds, have recently received considerable publicity. These reports are based on birth defects registry data, and there may be variation in the completeness of the registries used. We analyzed temporal trends in the prevalence of hypospadias in Finland to assess the previously reported low overall prevalence and to detect any possible increasing tendencies during the past decade. We identified all patients who were surgically treated for hypospadias before the age of 9 years among boys born 1970-1986 in the national hospital discharge registry. We calculated the cumulative prevalence by dividing the number of patients by the number of male births, and we used Poisson regression analysis. Out of 549,176 boys born in Finland in 1970-1986, 1,543 were treated for hypospadias by the age of 8 years (28.1 surgically treated patients per 10,000 male live births; 95% confidence interval, 26.7-29.5). The prevalence of hypospadias in Finland remained constant throughout the study period and appears to have been approximately three times higher than previously reported. Changes in completeness of registration may account for a substantial proportion of the reported increases in the prevalence of hypospadias in Finland and possibly also elsewhere.  (+info)

Abnormalities of the genitourinary tract in female mice lacking GATA5. (5/205)

Members of the GATA family of transcription factors play important roles in cell fate specification, differentiation, and morphogenesis during mammalian development. GATA5, the only one of the six vertebrate GATA factor genes not yet inactivated in mice, is expressed in a pattern that overlaps with but is distinct from that of other GATA factor genes. During mouse embryogenesis, GATA5 is expressed first in the developing heart and subsequently in the lung, vasculature, and genitourinary system. To investigate the function of GATA5 in vivo, we created mice homozygous for a GATA5 null allele. Homozygous mutants were viable and fertile, but females exhibited pronounced genitourinary abnormalities that included vaginal and uterine defects and hypospadias. In contrast, the genitourinary system was unaffected in male GATA5 mutants. These results reveal a specific role of GATA5 in development of the female genitourinary system and suggest that other GATA factors may have functions overlapping those of GATA5 in other tissues.  (+info)

Hormone-dependent cancer and adverse reproductive outcomes in farmers' families--effects of climatic conditions favoring fungal growth in grain. (6/205)

OBJECTIVES: The impact of grain farming and climate on late-term abortion among female farmers, male genital birth defects among their sons, and hormone-dependent cancer among male and female farmers and their adult children was investigated. METHODS: National registers were cross-matched in Norway and 246,043 male and female farmers born in 1925-1971 were identified, as were their 264,262 children, born in 1952-1980, in agricultural censuses and in the population register. The subjects were followed in the Cancer Register through 1995. Farmers' births, conceived in 1973-1991, were identified, and the prevalences of late-term abortion in mothers and hypospadias and cryptorchidism in their sons at birth were examined. Exposure, defined as the combination of grain farming and categories of seasonal or cumulative warnings, was based on data in agricultural censuses and on local, seasonal, field fungal warnings. Estimated adjusted rate ratios or prevalence ratios served as the measures of association. RESULTS: Categories of high exposure were associated with reproductive outcomes and cancer among female farmers, the strongest occurring for late-term abortion (ratio 2.6, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.6-4.3). Exposure associations for ovarian and breast cancer, and male genital defects, were more moderate. Endometrial cancer was associated with grain farming (ratio 2.0, 95% CI 1.4-2.8) across all levels of fungal warnings. Exposure associations for cancer were strongest for premenopausal, parous women. Exposure was not associated with cancer among male farmers or children. CONCLUSIONS: Climatic conditions favoring fungal growth in grain were associated with hormone-dependent adverse outcomes among female farmers; the results are consistent with hormonal effects of inhaled mycotoxins during pregnancy.  (+info)

Genetic evidence for a novel gene(s) involved in urogenital development on 10q26. (7/205)

BACKGROUND: Although the frequent association between distal 10q monosomy and urogenital anomalies suggests the presence of a gene(s) for urogenital development on distal 10q, molecular deletion mapping has not been performed for the putative gene(s). In this study, we examined genotype-phenotype correlations in patients with distal 10q monosomy. METHODS: This study consisted of six karyotypic males (cases 1 through 6) and four karyotypic females (cases 7 through 10) with 10q26 monosomy. Cases 3 through 5 and 7 through 10 had urinary anomalies such as vesicoureteral reflux and hypoplastic kidney, and cases 1 through 6, 8, and 9 exhibited genital anomalies such as micropenis, hypospadias, cryptorchidism, and hypoplastic labia majora. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for 10q telomere, whole chromosome 10 painting, and microsatellite analysis for 35 loci on distal 10q were performed in cases 1 through 8. RESULTS: FISH and whole chromosome painting confirmed distal 10q monosomy in cases 1 through 8. Microsatellite analysis revealed that hemizygosity for the region distal to D10S186 was shared by cases with urinary anomalies and that for the region distal to D10S1248 was common to cases with genital anomalies. Furthermore, it was indicated that PAX2, GFRA1, and EMX2 on distal 10q, in which the deletions could affect urinary and/or genital development, were present in two copies in cases 1 through 8. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that a novel gene(s) for urinary development and that for genital development reside in the approximately 20 cM region distal to D10S186 and in the approximately 10 cM region distal to D10S1248, respectively, although it remains to be determined whether the two types of genes are identical or different.  (+info)

Testicular dysgenesis syndrome: an increasingly common developmental disorder with environmental aspects. (8/205)

Numerous reports have recently focused on various aspects of adverse trends in male reproductive health, such as the rising incidence of testicular cancer; low and probably declining semen quality; high and possibly increasing frequencies of undescended testis and hypospadias; and an apparently growing demand for assisted reproduction. Due to specialization in medicine and different ages at presentation of symptoms, reproductive problems used to be analysed separately by various professional groups, e.g. paediatric endocrinologists, urologists, andrologists and oncologists. This article summarizes existing evidence supporting a new concept that poor semen quality, testis cancer, undescended testis and hypospadias are symptoms of one underlying entity, the testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS), which may be increasingly common due to adverse environmental influences. Experimental and epidemiological studies suggest that TDS is a result of disruption of embryonal programming and gonadal development during fetal life. Therefore, we recommend that future epidemiological studies on trends in male reproductive health should not focus on one symptom only, but be more comprehensive and take all aspects of TDS into account. Otherwise, important biological information may be lost.  (+info)

The current research aims to evaluate the risk factors of urethrocutaneous fistula after hypospadias surgery among the youth in China. One hundred twenty hypospadias patients were enrolled in our study. All of them were defined as Tanner 4 or 5. The information collected from the participants include age, urethral operation history, urinary comorbidities before operation, urine test before operation, body temperature before and after operation, type of surgical repair, chordee degree, urethral defect length and whether received vesicostomy after surgery or not. Independent t test, chi-square test and multivariate logistic regression were performed to evaluate the risk factor of urethrocutaneous fistula. Among the enrolled patients, 39 patients (32.5%) developed urethrocutaneous fistula after hypospadias repair. Our result showed significant association between the group with urethrocutaneous fistula and the group without urethrocutaneous fistula with respect to age, pyuria before operation, urethral

Hypospadias is a defect in the opening of the penis, the urethra ends on the underside of the penis or bottom of the penis, or in the scrotum. Hypospadias is present at birth. Hypospadias repair is done most often between 6 months and 2 years old. The extra tissue of the foreskin may be used to repair the hypospadias during surgery. So the children with hypospadias should not be circumcised at birth. After surgery the penis will look almost or completely normal and function well. However if the hypospadias defect is complicated type, it may be need more operations to repair.. ...
FOR DOCTORS - PART IV Grade II or Distal Hypospadias: The Slit-like adjusted Mathieu (SLAM) Technique The meatal-based flap technique of Mathieu is the most popular technique for distal hypospadias repair and has withstood the test of time. However, the major drawback of the original Mathieu technique is the final appearance of the meatus (a smiling meatus that is not very terminal). The Slit-like adjusted Mathieu (SLAM) helps to employ the Mathieu operation in all forms of distal hypospadias and gives a terminal, slit like meatus. This will include about 70 to 80 % of patients with hypospadias. The only contraindication is the presence of severe chordee distal to the hypospadiac meatus (very rare in distal hypospadias). Operative steps: The boundaries of the urethral plate are outlined. A U-shaped incision is outlined. The two parallel incisions at the glans region start along the true mucosal urethral plate to have large, wide glanular wings. At the distal end, the two incision converge as ...
Penis Curvature in Hypospadias vs. Isolated Penis Curvature. Penis Curvature in Hypospadias vs. Isolated Penis Curvature Left picture: In this case a typical curvature combined with a hypospadias is present; it occurs often in severe types of hypospadias. Right picture: The diagnosis is an isolated curvature of the penis without a recognizable hypospadias. For this differential diagnosis the following abnormalities of the local findings are useful: Left picture: A prepuce is not recognizable on the ventral side, but there is a surplus of the visible part of the foreskin on the dorsal side, forming a ridge like a cape. Besides the external urethral orifice which is displaced in a ventral and proximal direction, the described elements are characteristic; compare them with the figure at the bottom with a ventral view of the penis of another patient with nearly identical findings . Right picture: Here, the described elements are missing; therefore, the terms penis curvature without hypospadias or ...
Hypospadias surgery is technically demanding and is often encountered with complications like fistula and glanular dehiscence. To prevent these complications we have instituted Bucks fascia repair (BFR) with wingless glanuloplasty (WLP) in the cases of distal penile hypospadias (DPH) deemed to be suitable for TIP repair. The aim of this prospective study was to assess the outcome of Bucks fascia repair (BFR) with minimal wingless glanuloplasty (WGP). This prospective study included 50 patients with coronal, subcoronal and midpenile hypospadias who received a tubularization of incised plate (TIP) repair. The exclusion criteria were glanular hypospadias, Thiersch Duplay repair, proximal penile hypospadias, previous penile surgeries, uncorrectable chordee, glans size | 14 mm, flat glanular groove and preoperative testosterone therapy. Over a period of 3 years, 50 patients with mean age of 3.5 ± 0.8 years were recruited for the study. Meatal position was coronal, subcoronal and midpenile in 6, 24 and 20
Penoscrotale Hypospadias vs. Burried Penis (Micropenis). Penoscrotale Hypospadias vs. Burried Penis (Micropenis) Left picture: Here, a severe type of hypospadias is present, a so-called penoscrotal hypospadias. Right picture: The diagnosis is a so-called burried penis, which means a penis that seems to be a micropenis due to or hidden by obesity. Left picture: Only a precise examination yields informations on the actual pathology and allows to discard the first impression of intersexual external genitals. In the additional figure at the bottom the penis is elevated, and the scrotum unfolded. In both scrotal halves a testis of normal size is visible and palpable. The penis has a ventral curvature, its ventrally split foreskin is adherent to the right circumference of the glans, and the urethral orifice lies at the beginning of the bifid (ventrally split) scrotum. Right picture: In the additional picture the suprapubic fatty tissue has been moved to the top, revealing a developed penis ...
In most cases the foreskin is also underdeveloped and does not wrap completely around the penis, leaving the underside of the glans penis uncovered. There may also be downward bending of the penis, commonly referred to as chordee. This is found in 10% of distal hypospadias[5] and 50% of proximal hypospadias[6] at the time of surgery. The scrotum may be higher than usual to either side of the penis, called penoscrotal transposition, adding to the abnormal overall appearance.. Hypospadias is thought to result from failure of the urinary channel to completely tubularize to the end of the penis. The cause of hypospadias is not known. Most often, it is the only abnormal finding, although in about 10% of cases hypospadias may be part of a syndrome with multiple abnormalities.. The most common associated defect is an undescended testicle, which has been reported in approximately 3% of infants with distal hypospadias and 10% of those having proximal hypospadias. The combination of hypospadias and an ...
Occurring in 1 in 300 males, hypospadias is an abnormality of the penis, with 3 basic features. Firstly, the urethra fails to reach the tip of the penis and opens somewhere on its undersurface. This can be anywhere from just below the tip, and as far as in front of the anus, in a very severe case. In addition, the foreskin is normally deficient on the undersurface of the penis, and the penis itself is curved in a downward direction. This latter curvature may either be due to the short skin on the undersurface, tethering the penis down, or to an inherent curvature of the penis itself, characteristic in more severe cases.. The majority of hypospadias is found towards the end of the penis, and can be corrected with a single stage procedure. More severe hypospadias and in particular, that where the hole is more highly located and there is an associated bend of the penis, (or chordee), require a 2 stage procedure. The first stage straightens the penis and a graft is placed on the undersurface, ...
Parents usually ask the Urologist that their child urinates finely and has bowel movements just fine. So why are we having the surgery done if it doesnt hurt him and he urinates just fine? Simple answer to these parents is Surgery is essential because Hypospadias can cause problems as he gets older. Problems are listed below: 1. Irregular urine stream .He would have to pee sitting down his whole life. 2. His penis would look different than other boys. 3. It could potentially create fertility issues. The opening of the penis is not close to the cervix as a result of which the sperm is not in the right place to cause pregnancy. 4. If the penis has chordee (downward curvature of the penis) it becomes very painful, difficult or even impossible to have intercourse as an adult.. If the hypospadias needs to be repaired, this is done by surgery. The aim is to repair and reconstruct the urethra. Depending on the degree of the hypospadias, the surgery can range from relatively simple to very challenging. ...
Definition of penoscrotal hypospadias. Provided by Stedmans medical dictionary and Drugs.com. Includes medical terms and definitions.
Hypospadias is a congenital abnormality of the penis in boys. It is common, occuring in 1 out of 150 - 200 boys (approx). The 3 main abnormalities in hypospadias are 1)the abnormal position of urinary meatus (opening) on the undersurface of the penis 2)abnormal bend (curvature) of the penis (called Chordee) 3)abnormal foreskin distribution on the penis (usually only half of the penis has foreskin in children with hypospadias).
This is part of our series on hidden or stigmatised health conditions in men. Read the other articles in the series here.. Hypospadias is a malformation of the penis that is present from birth. In hypospadias, the opening of the urethra (the tube that drains urine from the bladder) is misplaced somewhere along the underside of the penis instead of being at the tip.. The degrees of severity vary, depending on the position of the opening. It can sit within the glans (the tip of the penis), on the shaft of the penis itself, or even within the scrotum, between the two testes.. Although the incidence varies among regions, hypospadias affects approximately one in 250 male children. Of these, 70% comprise less severe forms, where the opening is relatively close to the tip of the penis, while 30% are affected by more severe forms.. Diagnosis. Most cases are diagnosed at birth or during childhood, when parents or doctors find the penis is abnormal during a physical examination. However, it is not ...
PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the functional and cosmetic outcome of tubularized incised plate urethroplasty (TIPU) with preputial reconstruction and preservation of a thin distal urethra when applicable. METHODS: The records of 64 boys with hypospadias, who underwent TIPU between 2000 and 2007 were analyzed. 33 (52%) underwent foreskin reconstruction and a thin distal urethra was preserved and incorporated in 19 (30%) patients. The Hypospadias Objective Scoring Evaluation (HOSE), Pediatric Penile Perception Score (PPPS), and uroflowmetry were evaluated in 55 boys (86%) after a mean of 4 ...
What is hypospadias? Hypospadias is a male birth defect in which the opening of the tube that carries urine from the body ( urethra ) develops abnormally, usually on the underside of the penis. The opening can occur anywhere from just below the end of the penis to the scrotum. What causes hypospadias? In most cases, the...
Transgenerational effects of diethylstilbestrol (DES) have been reported in animals and humans. Alerted by two case reports, Klip H et al conducted a cohort study of all sons of a Dutch cohort of 16 284 women with a diagnosis of fertility problems and obtained a 67% response rate; their findings suggest an increased risk of hypospadias in the sons of women exposed in utero to DES. The mothers of 205 boys reported DES exposure in utero, and four of these boys were reported to have hypospadias. This defect was reported in only 8 of the remaining 8729 sons (prevalence ratio 21.3 (95% confidence interval (CI) 6.5-70.1)).. In a retrospective study, we analysed 32 406 computerized obstetrical and pediatric files at Port-Royal Maternity Center, covering births from 1 January 1993 to 31 December 2002. We compared the prevalence rate of hypospadias among 17 633 boys of mothers with and without in utero DES exposure.. The mothers of 240 boys had reported DES exposure in utero. Three (1.23%) were reported ...

PURPOSE: To analyze agreement on postoperative complications after hypospadias surgery according to medical records and parents reports. MATERIALS & METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, data were collected from 409 children who received an initial one-stage hypospadias correction in the Radboudumc, The Netherlands. Postoperative complications according to medical records were compared with parent-reported complications in an online questionnaire. Main complications studied were wound-related complications, urinary tract infections, fistulas, stenosis, and prepuce-related complications. Agreement was determined by Cohens kappa coefficient. RESULTS: Slightly less complications were mentioned in medical records (37%) compared to parents reports (42%). Overall agreement was moderate (kappa=0.50, 95% confidence interval (CI):0.41-0.59), but poor for some specific complications. Agreement was higher for complications that needed reoperation compared to when no reoperation was performed ...
If your son has hypospadias, our pediatric urologists are experienced with hypospadias repair to restore functioning and appearance.
San Francisco - Researchers have successfully induced hypospadias in mice, an accomplishment that observers say provides more compelling evidence in support of the endocrine disruptor hypothesis as an explanation for the increase in hypospadias observed over the past 30 years.
Results Multivariable analysis showed a strong association with potential maternal occupational exposure to heavy metals with an over twofold increased risk of hypospadias (OR 2.6; 95% CI 1.3 to 5.2), and women exposed to phthalates were more likely to have an affected son (OR 1.2; 95% CI 0.8 to 1.7). Compared with mild or isolated cases, the risks of moderate-severe hypospadias or multiple defects were increased up to two- and fivefold, respectively, with maternal exposure to most types of EDCs. Paternal occupational exposures to polychlorinated organic (OR 1.3; 95% CI 1.0 to 1.8) and bi-phenolic (OR 1.6; 95% CI 1.0 to 2.6) compounds were also possible risk factors. ...
Hypospadias A congenital anomaly of the penis in pediatric patients. opening of the urethra is on the underside, rather than at the end, of the penis TREATMENT: The child will have surgery between 16-18 months of age.

My Son was born with a congenital birth defect - Hypospadias. We were not aware of Hypospadias in the beginning and even the regular pediatrician also bluffed us that it is a minor issue and can be rectified with small surgery.Finally my son underwent the surgery for the first time in a childrens hospital on July 30th 2011 with a pediatric surgeon. Its our bad luck to say that the surgery got failed on the second day itself and my son literally faced lots and lots of problems, in other words he has seen hell in the hospital. We did not understand the situation going on and finally my son got discharged after 11 days by seeing hell and back to home ...

Introduction: The presence of a recurrent proximal penile hypospadius represents a surgical challenge to the urologist due to the presence of excessive scarring and fibrosis of the tissues. This problem is more pronounced in circumcised patients, in whom there is no enough skin for one stage procedures. Buccal mucosal grafts represent a good surgical option. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of two stages buccal mucosal urethroplasty in pediatric & adolescent patients, presenting with recurrent proximal penile hypospadias who are circumcised. Methods: Thirty seven pediatric & adolescent patients underwent two stages buccal mucosal urethroplasty for recurrent proximal penile hypospadius. In all cases the buccal graft was placed dorsally followed by the second stage closure after 6 months. Results: The mean age was 17.7 (14-20) years. With a mean follow-up of 28.3 months, 33 patients (89.2%) had a final successful outcome. Of the 4 cases that were considered as failure, 3 patients (8.1%)
In all, 214 consecutive children with distal hypospadias were identified who had had a GRAP repair, of whom 205 were suitable for further study. The position of the urethral meatus in these children is summarized in Table 1. While some children were admitted before surgery for social reasons, most operations, i.e. in 183 patients (89%), were undertaken as day cases.. Problems immediately after surgery were rare; seven children (3.4%) were admitted overnight with medical problems. Of these boys, two had difficulty in voiding, one of whom required catheter drainage of the bladder. Two patients with uncontrolled pain required analgesia, two had significant nausea and vomiting, and one had a penile haematoma. Fifteen children (7.3%) stayed for one night after repair, with no clearly documented clinical indication.. A fistula occurred in 15 patients (7%); of these, one is known to have healed spontaneously, eight have been corrected surgically on a day-case basis and one fistula was not initially ...
CXorf66 also known as Chromosome X Open Reading Frame 66, is a 361aa protein in humans that is encoded by the CXorf66 gene. The protein encoded is predicted to be a type 1 transmembrane protein; however, its exact function is currently unknown. CXorf66 has one alias: RP11-35F15.2. There is a patent for CXorf66 under the file US 8586006 by the Institute for Systems Biology and Integrated Diagnostics, Inc. CXorf66 protein is a potential novel cancer biomarker. CXorf66 is located on Chromosome X at Xq27.1 and is on the complement strand. The CXorf66 gene is located between ATP11C ATPase, MIR505, and HNRNPA3P3. In addition to this, according to OMIM, CXorf66 is positioned between SOX3, SPANXB1, and CDR1. CXorf66 only consists of one known splice variant with three exons (1-117, 118-271, and 272-1288bp) and two introns. Locations of junctions occur at 30aa [G] and 81aa [M]. CXorf66 has only been found to have only one polyadenylation site. With 57 serines and 42 lysines, the CXorf66 protein is both ...

The association between surgical outcome of hypospadias repair and long-term male reproductive function has not been documented. The purpose of this study was to clarify association between paternity in adult hypospadias patients and reoperation for urethral obstruction after two-stage repair during childhood. Ninety hypospadias patients who underwent the same kind of two-stage repair in our institute by a single surgeon, were initially treated at | 18 years old, and who were ≥ 18 years old during the survey were included in the study. Present physical, social, and life status were evaluated by a mailed self-entry questionnaire, and clinical background and surgical outcome data were evaluated by medical records. National survey data of the general population were used as external control. The paternity rate of the patient groups was evaluated by Kaplan-Meier curve analysis and log-rank tests. Twenty-six patients (28.9%) underwent 43 reoperations after completion of the initial repair. Twelve patients
The partial androgen insensitivity syndrome occurs in 46,XY subjects with phenotypes ranging from perineoscrotal hypospadias with cryptorchidism and micropenis (mild undervirilisation) to clitoromegaly and partial labial fusion (marked undervirilisation). Within an affected family, wide variation in the degree of genital ambiguity between individuals can be seen. Two cousins of a previously reported subject who had severe genital ambiguity and partial androgen insensitivity were investigated. Neither of the cousins had genital abnormalities as marked as the index case, who also had qualitatively abnormal androgen binding and two mutations of the androgen receptor gene. Despite marked phenotypic differences between the index case and his cousins, similar androgen binding and the same androgen receptor mutations were shown in the cousins. Furthermore, one of the androgen receptor gene mutations has been shown in the mother and sister of one of the boys indicating that they are carriers. Thus ...
Dr. Bush presented PARC Urologys data for patients undergoing hypospadias reoperations after multiple failed repairs done elsewhere. She compared the graft measurements in a group of patients who received Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) versus a group of patients who did not. Even though the patients in the hyperbaric oxygen HBOT group had failed more previous surgeries, their grafts were healthier with the oxygen therapy compared to those who did not have HBOT. This is important because it is the first time it has ever been shown that grafts can be improved in patients with multiple prior hypospadias surgeries. HBOT has been used to help chronic wound healing problems for other diseases, such as in diabetes, but has never been shown to help hypospadias patients until now. During HBOT sessions, patients are given 100% oxygen to breathe while a machine pressurizes, like what happens on an airplane. The combination of the oxygen and the pressure has been shown to grow new blood vessels in ...

Potential trans-generational influence of diethylstilbestrol (DES) exposure emerged with reports of effects in grandchildren of DES-treated pregnant women and of reproductive tract tumors in offspring of mice exposed in utero to DES. Accordingly, we examined the trans-generational influence of DES on development of external genitalia (ExG) and compared effects of in utero DES exposure in CD-1 and C57BL/6 mice injected with oil or DES every other day from gestational days 12 to 18.Mice were examined at birth, and on 5-120 days postnatal to evaluate ExG malformations.. Of 23 adult (,60 days) prenatally DES-exposed males, features indicative of urethral meatal hypospadias ranged from 18% to 100% in prenatally DES-exposed CD-1 males and 31% to 100% in prenatally DES-exposed C57BL/6 males. Thus, the strains differed only slightly in the incidence of male urethral hypospadias. Ninety-one percent of DES-exposed CD-1 females and 100% of DES-exposed C57BL/6 females had urethral-vaginal fistula. All ...
RESULTS: THM exposures, except for ingestion of ≥6 μg/day of bromodichloromethane (odds ratio [OR]: 1.65 [95% confidence interval (CI): 1.02-2.69]), were not associated with risk of hypospadias. Elevated risk of hypospadias was associated with estimates of consumption of cold tap water at home (OR: 1.71 [95% CI: 1.07-2.76]), total water (OR: 1.70 [95% CI: 1.09-2.67]), bottled water (OR: 1.64 [95% CI: 1.09-2.48]), and total fluid (OR: 1.55 [95% CI: 1.01-2.39]) for the highest versus the lowest categories; the first 2 showed dose-response trends. ...
Twin boys, both of whom had hypospadias and bilateral cryptorchidism, each developed a left-sided Wilmss tumour. The first twin was found to have an advanced multifocal tumour at the age of 15 months and died with local recurrence and pulmonary metastases. The diagnosis was made in the second twin one month later and at nephrectomy the tumour was found to be encapsulated without metastases; he is disease-free 12-years later. Although the histological appearances were similar in each twin, the tumours did not develop at the same rate and did not show the mirror-image pattern suggested for embryonal tumours in identical twins.. ...
I am an 18-year-old straight male. I have a hodgepodge of birth defects that affect my genitalia: severe hypospadias (my urethra - my piss slit - is at the base of my penis), micropenis (less than two inches), and anorchia (I was born without testes). I have never been naked around anyone else. I dont really like being naked by myself, to be honest.. Lately, my sex drive has skyrocketed. It is driving me up the wall. Couple this with the fact that women see me as attractive, and Im not doing well. Its frustrating that sexual situations are presenting themselves to me and theres nothing I can do.

The Section on Urology of the American Academy of Pediatrics has charged this committee with the task of evaluating the status of the question of meatal stenosis in boys (excluding those with hypospadias). The objective information on the subject is limited; however, our conclusions, based on review of available literature and the committees deliberations, are as follows.. Etiology. Meatitis, an inflammation generally secondary to ammoniacal diaper irritation, has been cited as the underlying cause of secondary meatal stenosis.1 The lack of protection by the foreskin in the circumcised male is thought to correlate with an increased incidence of meatitis. Meatal narrowing has been noted to occur more commonly in the circumcised male.1,2 The formation of a ventral lip of tissue is characteristic of secondary meatal narrowing and may cause deflection of the urinary stream upward. Campbell, however, suggested that congenital meatal stenosis is the underlying cause of meatitis,3 whereas Allen and ...

After reading the Daily Telegraph of London, I read some of the 299 comments and per usual everybody has an opinion about something they know nothing about. All speculative! As a Urologist, who lectures on this very subject to medical doctors, let me tell you what I think I know from reading the AP from Pretoria, SA. Caster Semenya has a probable genetic Disorder of Sexual Development known as Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, probably Grade 5 or 6, where the external genitalia are female-like and the internal genitalia are vestigial testes, which produce Testosterone and Estrogen. I say probable because we cannot know if she has any ovarian tissue mixed with the testis tissue until these vestigial organs are examined under the microscope by a pathologist. This will probably never happen, unless it is presented to her as a condition for receiving female hormones. At this moment everyone is assuming she is an XY woman. Now somebody said she had three times the normal female Testosterone ...

Abstract: Extracted text; Background Congenital abnormalities vary in presentation, yet studies using model organisms tend to focus on occurrence rather than severity of the defect. Scoring severity of abnormalities in model systems allows explicit hypothesis testing during basic, translational, and reverse translational studies. We developed and validated a protocol to quantify severity of male urogenital feminization (hypospadias) in the mouse model. Hypospadias is one of the most common birth defects in the world. Methods To induce genital feminization, pregnant mice were exposed to different concentrations of the anti-androgen vinclozolin. Genitalia were photographed at gestational age 18.5. A dichotomous scoring system to evaluate genital feminization was developed, and validated against histological measurements of urethral length. A training protocol was developed for novice scorers, and criteria were defined to evaluate precision and accuracy of scores. Results Vinclozolin induced ...
For the first time in history, research has discovered new hope for preventing physical birth defects in children born to women with epilepsy. Australias Melbourne Health Center has released its breaking news based on the latest research in the Neurology journal of the American Academy of Neurology, where it has linked physical defects such as spina bifida and hypospadias to the intake in high doses of valproate, a common epilepsy drug normally taken to control epileptic seizures. Royal Melbourne Hospital epilepsy specialist and Head of the Department of Medicine at The University of Melbourne, Professor Terry OBrien, states that they now know that by reducing the dose taken in the first trimester of pregnancy, the risk of having a baby with spina bifida or hypospadias will be greatly reduced. Cleft palates and heart defects are also not a rarity in children born to these epileptic mothers. This conclusion was reached after an intensive study on 1700 women who have been or currently are ...
OBJECTIVE: This study focused on the oxidative stress effect of di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP) on development of the urinary system. METHODS: We examined the mRNA expression of genital tubercle (GT) in control and DBP induced hypospadias group by Affymetrix Rat 230 2.0 Array. Real-time PCR and Western Blot were used to detect the protein and mRNA expression levels of inositol-1,4,5-triphate-receptor (IP3R) and epithelial-mesenchymal-transition (EMT)-related molecular markers, such as E-cadherin, ß-Catenin, Snail, N-cadherin, in the GT of hypospadiac male rats and controls. The results of array were further confirmed in vitro. The changes of intracellular calcium concentration in urethral epithelial cells were detected by Fluo-3-AM before and after DBP treatment. The levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in urethral epithelial cells were measured by DCFH-DA with different concentrations of DBP (0, 1, 10, 100 µmol/L) treatment. RESULTS: The mRNA expression profiles of GT in control and DBP induced ...
Its sad but correct. Their sleazy ads also these capsules are for men using a kind of Hypospadias or little penis. This implies that it is a drugs for guys with some sort of disease.

Disorders of sex development (DSDs) are congenital conditions resulting in atypical chromosomal, gonadal or anatomic sex. Around 80% of 46,XY DSD cases still remain unexplained genetically. Phenotypes include gonadal dysgenesis, male-to-female sex reversal and hypospadias, where the urethra is abnormally positioned along the penis. Mutations in SOX9, a gene essential for testicular development, have been implicated in DSDs, but its tissue-specific regulation is not fully understood. SOX9 tissue-specific enhancer mutations can cause isolated clinical phenotypes. Through genome wide mapping, mutations around SOX9 have been identified in isolated DSD patients. All patients had gonadal defects and hypospadias. We hypothesised that a 78 kb region encompassing these mutations contains a novel gonadal enhancer that we aimed to identify. Comparative genomic analysis identified seven highly conserved sub-regions within TES2. Unexpectedly, transgenic mouse analysis revealed that the most highly conserved ...

Micropenis is defined as a normally structured penis that is below the normal size range for an infant. Normally, the length of a newborn boys penis is between 2.8 to 4.2 centimeters (1.1 to 1.6 inches) with a circumference of 0.9 to 1.3 centimeters (0.35 to 0.5 inches). This measurement is taken by carefully stretching the penis and measuring from the tip of the penis to the base of the penis. A penis length of less than 1.9 centimeters (0.75 inches) is usually considered micropenis. ...

I have been running non stop since Friday night. The holiday parties and errands for our foster son. I was bone tired last night and looking forward to some rest but Titus decided to have a fussy night. I slept in 40 minute intervals and was awoken for good at 4:45. I know, its a high class problem to have. I grumbled but treasured the hour of snuggle time he allowed me before he decided to play. Titus saw the pediatric urologist for his final post op checkup. He did spring a leak mid shaft. This is called a fistula and there was a 20% chance of it occurring. He will have a second surgery in February. He also has an undescended testicle. I suppose they will correct that within a couple of months of the fistula repair. Hypospadias and undescended testicles are on the same gene and often go together. If we get everything corrected Titus should have normal sexual function as an adult. The urologist really wants him to see the pediatric endocrinologist. Titus is still so very small. He is 13 months ...
Is there such a thing as an ugly penis? How about a pretty one? These researchers set out to determine what features are most important for a good-looking dong (with a specific application to men who had surgery to correct a penile birth defect). To do so, they had over 100 women rate photos of normal and surgically corrected penises, as well as complete a survey about which features of penile appearance were most important to them. The result? General cosmetic appearance and appearance of pubic hair were rated at the top, while penile length, appearance of the scrotum, and position/shape of the meatus (urethral opening) were at the bottom of the list. More proof that size really doesnt matter (except, perhaps, when it comes to the GDP…)!. What is a Good Looking Penis?

The value of conclusions drawn from the present analysis is inevitably limited by the relatively small numbers of instances of individual malformations that were available for study, and studies of larger populations might produce different outcomes. The difficulty of obtaining well-matched control populations and limitations of size of malformed fetal collections beset much of the published work in the area. There is a peculiarity in the AED-unexposed control data in the present study, in that three of the four male fetuses with malformations had hypospadias. This is a surprisingly high proportion and leads to concern about using these particular data for comparison purposes. Multivariable logistic regression has been used in the present study to increase the number of subjects involved by including fetuses exposed to AED polytherapy as well as AED monotherapy. Only statistically significant (P , 0.05) findings from the investigation are discussed below.. The present analysis has provided ...

Alex and Elliot were then born in mid January being 4 weeks premature. They spent about 10 days in the special care baby unit and both were treated for the normal premature symptoms including low blood sugars, difficulty in feeding and were tube fed, jaundice and given phototherapy. They also had petechiae rash over their bodies and sores under the arms and groin and were treated with gentamycin antibiotic. Alexs newborn hearing screening showed he had no responses to the test and we were told that we would need a follow up investigation with Audiology. A number of tests were carried out at the time, but not for CMV. They also had a further birth defect called Hypospadias which we think may be unrelated to CMV. But nonetheless there were a number of things going on following the birth. From about 4 months old, we had the support of audiology and teachers of the deaf. This included basic signing support, and initially given hearing aids to see whether this would assist his hearing. However my ...
