Abstract

Penoscrotal transposition is a rare anomaly of external genitalia, often associated with a variety of defects usually related to the urinary and the gastrointestinal tracts and the vertebral column. We report such a patient with hemivertebrae at L4-5, who had no other urological anomaly. To our knowledge this anomaly as an isolated urological entity with hemivertebrae has not been reported before. A brief mention is made of the embryology, incidence and various surgical techniques of correction.
