I. Introduction:

Hypospadias is a birth defect of the urethra in the male that

involves an abnormally placed urinary meatus (opening). Instead of
opening at the tip of the glans of the penis, a hypospadic urethra
opens anywhere along a line (the urethral groove) running from the tip
along the underside (ventral aspect) of the shaft to the junction of the
penis and scrotum or perineum. A distal hypospadias may be
suspected even in an uncircumcised boy from an abnormally formed
foreskin and downward tilt of the glans.

The urethral meatus opens on the glans penis in about 50-75% of

cases; these are categorized as first degree hypospadias. Second
degree (when the urethra opens on the shaft), and third degree (when
the urethra opens on the perineum) occur in up to 20 and 30% of cases
respectively. The more severe degrees are more likely to be associated
with chordee, in which the phallus is incompletely separated from the
perineum or is still tethered downwards by connective tissue, or with
undescended testes (cryptorchidism).

Hypospadias are among the most common birth defects of the male
genitalia (second to cryptorchidism), but widely varying incidences
have been reported from different countries, from as low as 1 in 4000
to as high as 1 in 125 boys.
There has been some evidence that the incidence of hypospadias
around the world has been increasing in recent decades. In the United
States, two surveillance studies reported that the incidence had
increased from about 1 in 500 total births (1 in 250 boys) in the 1970s
to 1 in 250 total births (1 in 125 boys) in the 1990s. Although a slight
worldwide increase in hypospadias was reported in the 1980s, studies
in different countries and regions have yielded conflicting results and
some registries have reported decreases.

First degree hypospadias are primarily a cosmetic defect and

have little effect on function except for direction of the urinary stream.
If uncorrected, a second or third degree hypospadias can make male
urination messy, necessitate that it be performed sitting, impair
delivery of semen into the vagina (possibly creating problems with
fertility), or interfere with erections. In developed countries, most
hypospadias are surgically repaired in infancy. Surgical repair of first
and second degree hypospadias is nearly always successful in one
procedure, usually performed in the first year of life by a pediatric
urologist or a plastic surgeon. When the hypospadias is third degree, or
there are associated birth defects such as chordee or cryptorchidism,
the best management can be a more complicated decision. A
karyotype and endocrine evaluation should be performed to detect
intersex conditions or hormone deficiencies. If the penis is small,
testosterone or human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections may be
given to enlarge it prior to surgery.

Surgical repair of severe hypospadias may require multiple

procedures and mucosal grafting. Preputial skin is often used for
grafting and circumcision should be avoided prior to repair. In a
minority of patients with severe hypospadias surgery produces
unsatisfactory results, such as scarring, curvature, or formation of
urethral fistulas, diverticula, or strictures. A fistula is an unwanted
opening through the skin along the course of the urethra, and can
result in urinary leakage or an abnormal stream. A diverticulum is an
"outpocketing" of the lining of the urethra which interferes with urinary
flow and may result in post-urination leakage. A stricture is a narrowing
of the urethra severe enough to obstruct flow. Reduced complication
rates even for third degree repair (e.g., fistula rates below 5%) have
been reported in recent years from centers with the most experience,
and surgical repair is now performed for the vast majority of infants
with hypospadias.

Because of the difficulties and lower success rates of surgical

repair of the most severe degrees of under virilization, some of these
genetically male but severely undervirilized infants have been
assigned and raised as girls, with feminizing surgical reconstruction.
Opinion has shifted against this approach in the last decade because
adult sexual function as a female has often been poor, and
development of a male gender identity despite female sex assignment
and rearing, has occurred in some XY children after reassignment for a
more severe type of genital birth defect, cloacal exstrophy.

Mild hypospadias most often occurs as an isolated birth defect

without detectable abnormality of the remainder of the reproductive or
endocrine system. However, a minority of infants, especially those with
more severe degrees of hypospadias will have additional structural
anomalies of the genitourinary tract. Up to 10% of boys with
hypospadias have at least one undescended testis, and a similar
number have an inguinal hernia. An enlarged prostatic utricle is
common when the hypospadias is severe (scrotal or perineal), and can
predispose to urinary tract infections, pseudo-incontinence, or even
stone formation.
II. Patient Profile:

A. General Data:

•Name: Schnider Sarvida

•Age: 8 years old
•Birthplace: Mandaue, Cebu
•Sex: Male
•Religion: Roman Catholic
•Civil Status: Child
•Address: Mandaue, Cebu City
•Date Admitted: April 18, 2009
•Time Admitted: 1:00pm
•Attending Physician: Dr. Lim

B. Chief Complaint:

The patient was admitted at AMOSUP - Seamens Hospital Cebu last

April 18,2009 at 1:00pm in the afternoon due to the doctors advice of
having a scheduled operation. He was attended at the Emergency
department and had taken a clinical history and physical assessment.
He was transferred at the Pediatric Ward. He was attended by Dr.
Edwin Lim, a resident physician of the said hospital.

C. History of Present Illness:

Patient’s condition started when her mother notice that when his child
urinates the opening the urethral meatus is located underside of the
penis. The mother discovered that his son is born with congenital
defects of hypospadia, and seek for medical assistance.
D. Developmental task:
1) Learning to physical skills necessary for
Childhood(6-12) ordinary games: To learn the physical skills
that are necessary for the games and
physical activities that are highly valued in
childhood--such skills as throwing and
catching, kicking, tumbling, swimming, and
handling simple tools.

2) Building wholesome attitudes towards

oneself as a growing organism: To develop
habits of care of the body, of cleanliness
and safety, consistent with a wholesome,
realistic attitude which includes a sense of
physical normality and adequacy, the ability
to enjoy using the body, and a wholesome
attitude toward sex. Sex education should
be a matter of agreement between school
and parents, with the school doing what the
parents feel they cannot do so well. The
facts about animal and human reproduction
should be taught before puberty.

3) Learning to get along with age-mates: To

learn the give-and-take of social life among
peers. To learn to make friends and to get
along with enemies. To develop a "social

4) Learning an appropriate masculin or

feminine social role: To learn to be a boy or
a girl--to act the role that is expected and
rewarded. The sex role is taught so
vigorously by so many agencies that the
school probably has little more than a
remedial function, which is to assist boys
and girls who are having difficulty with the

5) Developing fundamental skills reading,

writing, and calculating: To learn to read,
write, and calculate well enough to get
along in society.

6) Developing concepts necessary for

everyday living: A concept is an idea which
stands for a large number of particular
sense perceptions, or which stands for a
number of ideas of lesser degrees of
abstraction. The task is to acquire a store of
concepts sufficient for thinking effectively
about ordinary occupational, civic, and
social matters.

7) Developing conscience, morality, and a


Ego Development Outcome:
-Industry vs. Inferiority
School Age: 6 to 12 Years
Freudian psycho- sexual stages:
Latency Stage - Sexual dormancy or
repression. The focus is on learning, skills,
schoolwork. This is actually not a
psychosexual stage because basically
normally nothing formative happens
sexually. Experiences, fears and
conditioning from the previous stages have
already shaped many of the child's feelings
and attitudes and these will re-surface in
the next stage.
Basic Strengths:
Method and Competence
During this stage, often called the Latency,
we are capable of learning, creating and
accomplishing numerous new skills and
knowledge, thus developing a sense of
industry. This is also a very social stage of
development and if we experience
unresolved feelings of inadequacy and
inferiority among our peers, we can have
serious problems in terms of competence
and self-esteem.
As the world expands a bit, our most
significant relationship is with the school
and neighborhood. Parents are no longer
the complete authorities they once were,
although they are still important.

III. Anatomy:

Male reproductive system (human)

The purpose of the organs of the male

reproductive system is to perform the
following functions:

-To produce, maintain

and transport sperm
(the male reproductive cells) and protective fluid
-To discharge sperm within the female
reproductive tract during sex
-To produce and secrete male sex hormones
responsible for maintaining the male reproductive

Penis The penis has a long shaft and
enlarged tip called the glans penis.
The penis is the male copulatory
organ. When the male becomes
sexually aroused, the penis
becomes erect and ready for
sexual intercourse. Erection is
achieved because blood sinuses
within the erectile tissue of the
penis become filled with blood.
The arteries of the penis are
dilated while the veins are
passively compressed so that
blood flows into the erectile
cartilage under pressure. The male
penis is made of two different
tissues, and soft spongy tissue.
Cartilage is not in the penis.
Testicles The testes hang outside the
abdominal cavity of the male
within the scrotum. They begin
their development in the
abdominal cavity but descend into
the scrotal sacs during the last 2
months of fetal development. This
is required for the production of
sperm because internal body
temperatures are too high to
produce viable sperm.
Scrotum This is the loose pouch-like sac of
skin that hangs behind the penis.
It contains the testicles (also
called testes), as well as many
nerves and blood vessels. The
scrotum acts as a "climate control
system" for the testes. For normal
sperm development, the testes
must be at a temperature slightly
cooler than body temperature.
Special muscles in the wall of the
scrotum allow it to contract and
relax, moving the testicles closer
to the body for warmth or farther
away from the body to cool the

IV. Pathophysiology

The penis begins to form at approximately the fifth fetal week

under the influence of testosterone. The urethral folds start to fuse
over the urethral groove, and by the 14th week the process is
complete . A short in growth from the tip of the glans progresses
inward to meet the urethral tube at the fossa navicularis. The prepuce
is then formed at the end of the development process.
Hypospadias occurs when the fusion of the urethral folds stops
proximal to the tip of the glans penis and can occur anywhere along
the urethral groove.
Severe forms of hypospadias are accompanied by shortening of
the urethral groove, which causes ventral tethering of the penis, a
condition termed "chordee."

V. Signs and Symptoms

Hypospadias are deformities of the penis resulting from incomplete

development of the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the
bladder to the penis. It can occur in many different ways, including

• Opening of the urethra below the tip on the

bottom side of the penis
• Abnormal appearance of the glans penis (the tip)
• Incomplete foreskin in which the foreskin
extends only around the top of the penis
• Curvature of the penis during an erection (called

■ The urine will be blood tinged
for several days. Call the physician
if urine is seen leaking from any
area other than the penis.


Surgical management

The management of hypospadias is surgical correction. The type of

procedures needed for reconstruction are dependent on the degree of
the hypospadias. Most of the mild forms can be corrected using a
single procedure in the outpatient setting, however, severe forms of
hypospadias may require two or more procedures for correction and
may need hospitalization. The goal of the reconstruction is to
straighten the penis (correct chordee), bring the opening meatus to the
tip of the penis, and make the penis as cosmetically close to the
normal as possible.
Although surgical correction can be performed at any age, most
pediatric urologists would do the surgery between 6 and 17 months of
age. Following surgery, a stent (tube) may be left in place in the
reconstructed penis to drain the urine and a dressing is left in place.
The length of time that the stent and dressing are used is variable, but
is most frequently a week. The dressings and the stent are removed in
the office.
Boys are treated with oral pain medication if they are operated
upon in the outpatient surgery center.
Complications following surgery include fistula – hole in the
channel that is reconstructed – diagnosed by noting urine dripping
from a second opening when the child is urinating; and meatal stenosis
– scarring of the new opening – diagnosed by a narrowing of the urine
Additionally the new channel that is created can scar and cause a
stricture or even complete breakdown of the repair is possible. All of
these complications require further surgical repair. With the advances
in the techniques of surgery, the complications have been reduced
If hypospadias is noted at birth, it is STRONGLY recommended that
the child not have a circumcision. The foreskin that is removed at the
time of circumcision is used for the reconstruction of the hypospadias.
