Abstract:


Background: Hypospadias (HP), as an external genitalia anomaly might be associated with Testicular Microlithiasis (TML) and Undescended Testis (UDT). The aim of this study is to evaluate the results and outcomes of the combination of these associated anomalies.
Methods: Patients affected with Hypospadias (HP) patients who were assessed by testicular ultrasonography from January 2014 to December 2016 in Mofid Children’s Hospital enrolled in this study. Hypospadias divided into mild and a severe type, and Testicular Microlithiasis (TML) was checked by Ultrasonography (USG).
Results: Totally 56 boys with hypospadias enrolled in this study, of which 31 had mild and 25 had severe type. Eight children (14.3%) had UDT. Median age was 1.9 years old. Testicular Microlithiasis (TML) was found in nine (16%) patients. The Incidence of Testicular Ticrolithiasis (TML) was significantly higher in those patients affected by Hypospadias (HP) who had associated Undescended Testis (UDT).
Conclusion: Hypospadias patients associated with testicular microlithiasis and co-existing with undescended testis are mostly prone to testicular dysfunction.
