Epispadias: Signs and Symptoms

What are the signs and symptoms of epispadias?

In boys, the penis is typically short and broad and the urethral opening is located on the top side of the penis. From the location of the abnormal opening to the tip, the penis may be split. There may also be an abnormal curvature of the penis toward the abdomen.

Girls will have a narrow vaginal opening, wide labia, split clitoris and a short urethra. Wide pubic bones, urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence and reflux of urine into the kidneys are also symptoms of epispadias.
