Anomalies of the urogenital sinus have been described in association with male pseudohermaphroditism, bladder and uterine duplication, and a spectrum of external genital anomalies, including a female phallic urethra. The evaluation and optimal surgical management of these anomalies can be complex. We describe a case of a female patient with an accessory phallic urethra and a urogenital sinus anomaly. The presence of stenosis of the accessory urethral meatus led to the formation of a giant diverticulum with unusual features. The complete repair of the anomaly incorporated creation of labia minora from portions of the diverticulum.
