CLASSIFICATION

The most common classification was published by Duckett. He divided them into anterior (50%), middle (30%) and posterior (20%) hypospadias.

These are also classified according to the location of the meatus. The anterior form: glandular, coronal and subcoronal. The middle form: distal penile, “midshaft” and proximal penile.
The posterior form: penoscrotal, scrotal and perineal.

Special cases are the chordee without hypospadias and the “Megalomeatus The “chordee without hypospadias” is characterized by a ventral curvature of the penile shaft and normal position of the urethral opening.

The “Megalomeatus” is characterized by a normal looking prepuce and coronal lying meatus adjacent to a non closed-glans with an open navicular fossa.
