  1. Genetic and environmental factors in hypospadias.

    Article - En anglais

    A case control study of hypospadias was performed from 1979 to 1987 in Alsace, north-eastern France.

    A total of 176 out of 60 847 male infants had hypospadias giving a prevalence at birth of 289 per 1000 male newborns; 153% of all infants with hypospadias also had other malformations.

    Renal and urinary tract malformations were present in 370% of the infants with hypospadias and other additional malformations.

    None of the numerous aetiological factors which were studied was correlated with hypospadias except low weight of the placenta.
