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.
