A 1-year-old boy presented with complete duplication of the penis, with an ectopic bowel segment as an associated anomaly. The boy had duplicated epispadiac urethras. The right one ended blindly whereas the left one was patent, leading into the bladder. There was separation of the symphysis pubis and bifid scrotum. Investigations revealed no other anomalies. A review of the literature concerning diphallus showed a preponderance of associated anomalies such as exstrophy, bladder duplication, ureteral or renal defects, and imperforate anus, but no cases with an ectopic bowel segment. We report this case because of its extreme rarity.
