Introduction: Congenital prepubic sinus (CPS) is a rare anomaly. It has been considered as one of the presentations of the spectrum of vesico urethral developmental defects.
Observations: We are reporting two such rare cases: one in a year old female and another in a nine and half year’s old male child.
Conclusion: Simple excision of the sinus tract is preferred in most patients. Awareness and knowledge of the anatomical variations of the course of the sinus tract will help in complete excision and hence avoiding the recurrence.
