Objective: Megameatus intact prepuce is described as subset of megalourethra or distal hypospadias by several authors. Despite suggested different operative techniques, some authors prefer not to operate this variant of penile anomaly. We aimed to evaluate 31 patients operated due to megameatus intact prepuce and associated anomalies . Material and methods: Thirtyone patients operated between 2008-2018 for MIP were evaluated retrospectively. All data were collected from hospital records. Patient age, application reasons, raphe anomalies, associated genitourinary and extragenitourinary pathologies, operative techniques, and postoperative complications were analyzed. Results: Mean age was 50 months (8-128 months). Ten of the patients had raphe anomalies. Genital raphe hyperpigmentation was seen in 1 patient, raphe deviation and bifurcated raphe was seen in6 and 3 patients respectively. Genitourinary anomalies were detected in 7 patients, bilateral undescended testes in 1 patient, penile chordee in 2 patients, ureteropelvic junction obstruction in 2 patients, penoscrotal web in 1 patient, nocturnal enuresis in one patient. Tubularized incised plate urethroplasty (TIPU) (n=5), tubularized urethral plate urethroplasty (TUPU)(n=16) and meatoplasty (n=10) were the operative techniques. Conclusion: . Co-occuring raphe anomalies should arise awareness of MIP among the clinicians who are engaged with the children’s medical conditions and also the possible anomalies especially in the societies which circumcision is not traditionally required. Further studies with large number series needed for better understanding of this pathology.
