The Teaching Point

A congenital anterior urethrocutaneous fistula is a rare disease, which can arise without any trauma or surgical history, wherein a voiding cystourethrogram can show a fistula between the anterior urethra and skin. Megalourethra results from the faulty development of the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum and is rarely associated with a congenital anterior urethrocutaneous fistula.

Abstract
Congenital anterior urethrocutaneous fistula and megalourethra are both rare anomalies. These anomalies are commonly associated with other anorectal or genitourinary anomalies and evaluated with voiding cystourethrography. We examined a 34-month-old boy who presented with a fistula at the penoscrotal junction. A voiding cystourethrogram showed a jet of urine coming through the fistula and proximal saccular dilatation of the penile urethra. We present the imaging findings of the first case of an association between a congenital anterior urethrocutaneous fistula at the penoscrotal junction and a proximal penile megalourethra. We also discuss the etiology, management, and differential diagnosis of this entity, and review the literature.
