A rare congenital malformation (1/30,000 newborns), characterised by the presence of the urinary meatus on the back face of the penis and not at the tip.
Epispadias varies greatly, from a minimal distal defect to a complete form of epispadias with bladder exstrophy. In males, the penis is shortened with a flattened glans and an opening on the back with a similar appearance to "flat bread." Depending on the position of the urinary meatus, epispadias can be classified in three anatomo-clinical types: Balanic or glandular epispadias, penile epispadias and penopubic epispadias.
