FFM Tambo, J Birraux, A Wonkam, Z Sando, YW Joko, PY Mure, CL Coultre, GO Andze, MA Sosso


Urethral duplication is a rare congenital malformation affecting mainly boys. The authors report a case in a Cameroonian child who was diagnosed and managed at the Gynaeco-Obstetric and Paediatric Hospital, Yaounde. The malformation was characterized by the presence of an incontinent epispadic urethra and a normal apical urethra. We describe the difficulties faced in the management of this disorder in a developing country.
