Hypospadias and urethral development.

Hypospadias and urethral development. Hypospadias is a common congenital anomaly that may be treated with surgical reconstruction. In the majority of cases the etiology remains elusive. Although androgens are clearly critical for penile development, defects in androgen metabolism and/or the androgen receptor explain only a small subset of cases of hypospadias. Strategies are presented for understanding the etiology of hypospadias. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of urology Pubmed
