About this book

This book provides comprehensive but concise data for congenital diseases of the penis, explaining the embryological and anatomical background, incidence, historical background, investigation approaches, imaging and management of each condition.

The book is organised in themed parts, starting from embryology and normal anatomy and examining anomalies for each anatomical part: prepuce, penis, urinary meatus, penile urethra with a final part of acquired penile diseases with congenital background. With clear illustrations in each chapter to explain each condition in detail, online animations for the difficult and complex cases are also provided.

Practitioners in the field of pediatric urology and surgery will find this highly readable book particularly valuable. The author is a pioneer pediatric surgeon with over 30 years’ experience in the field of genitourinary anomalies. 


“This is a unique text describing in 40 chapters the embryology, anatomy, congenital anomalies, acquired diseases and treatment of the child’s penis. … Recommended to pediatric urologists, pediatric endocrinologists and practicing pediatricians.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 15 (2), December, 2017)

“Author Mohamed Fahmy aimed to assemble an exhaustive collection of congenital diseases of the penis. The basis of this textbook was the extensive experience of the author in the field of neonatology and congenital diseases of the genitalia. … This comprehensive and concise textbook is very useful for paediatricians, senior paediatric surgeons and trainees and will be the reference work for all practitioners managing cases of abnormal penis in children, infants or adolescents.” (European Urology Today, June-July, 2017)

“This is essentially an atlas of known anomalies of the penis. … The book is simple, direct, and well laid out. It will be understandable to all, from medical students to pediatric surgeons well versed in the subject. … this is an atlas or picture book of all things strange and unusual about the development of the penis. It is extensive and copiously illustrated with high-quality photographs.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
