Infant Genitalia

Figure 4.109. Penile agenesis with anterior displacement of an empty scrotum. The urethra appears at the top of the scrotal raphe. Agenesis of the phallus occurs as a result of failure of formation of the genital tubercle. The scrotum is usually present but may lack rugae, and descent of die testes is variable. This malformation has been reported most commonly in sirenomelia.

Penile Agenesis

Figure 4.111. This infant presented with severe hypoglycemia and a micropenis with a normal scrotum. The diagnosis of hypopituitarism should always be considered in an infant with micropenis and hypo-glycemia. Endocrine studies confirmed the diagnosis of hypopitu-itarism in this infant.

Figure 4.110. Ambiguous genitalia in a male infant with bilaterally descended testes and micropenis. The testosterone level was within normal limits for the newborn. Human chorionic growth hormone stimulation test (performed to see if the testes could respond to and produce testosterone) revealed inadequate testicular function. Exogenous administration of testosterone gave a good response with normal development of male genitalia.

Figure 4.112. Enlargement of the penis. Minimal length of the normal stretched penis is 2.5 cm with a maximum length of 4.0 cm.

Figure 4.113. There is a markedly enlarged penis in this infant. In these infants the diagnosis of megalourethra should be considered.

Figure 4.114. This infant has a large penis (8 cm) with left cryptorchidism. Note that the scrotal sac is full on the right and empty on the left.
