Author information

  • 1Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences Rohtak, Haryana 124001, India.


In view of the rarity of the lesion, we describe 3 cases of aphallia associated with genitourinary and nongenitourinary anomalies. One case was associated with an anorectal malformation, whereas 2 had a normal anal opening. One patient with a normal anal opening had an associated rectal-urethro-fistula. Development of the phallus, clinical presentation of aphallia, associated anomalies, and an outline of the management is discussed along with a review of the literature.
