Hypospadias affects approximately 1/200 boys. It is a defect of the penis in which the urethra opens on the underside of the penis. Boys with hypospadias should not be circumcised, since the foreskin may be necessary for the repair of the defect. Surgical repair is recommended between the ages of 6 months and 15 months.
