Epispadias with complete prepuce is a very rare anomaly. It is often associated with late presentation because it is a very rare condition and the penis appears grossly normal, thus, the diagnosis is easily missed during the neonatal period. We report a case of a boy presenting at seven years of age with epispadias and complete prepuce. The diagnosis should be suspected in any child presenting with incontinence, short penis, ballooned prepuce on voiding and absence of penile raphe or frenulum. The established procedures for repair of classic epispadias are equally effective and bladder neck reconstruction may be required to achieve continence.
