A condition in which the opening of the penis is on the underside rather than the tip.
Hypospadias is a relatively rare congenital condition where the opening of the penis is on the underside of the organ. This condition is more common in infants with a family history of hypospadias.
The penis may curve down in an infant and the baby may spray while urinating. It usually requires surgical correction to restore the proper flow of urine. This usually takes place before 18 months of age.
