Özet

Variant presentations of the exstrophy-epispadias complex are rare congenital malformations, such as covered exstrophy with bifid phallus. We describe a male neonate with covered exstrophy with an intestinal remnant and epispadiac bifid phallus. We report this case to emphasize the simultaneous successful repair of bifid phallus and exstrophy in this rare complex abnormality. (C) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
