All the information of the diagnosis, type of hypospadias, and the family history are provided. After collecting all the data, we analysed the total cases of hypospadias and the characteristic of hypospadias patients.

Result : Based on the data, 6,254 patient that registered in the Plastic Surgery Division, forty-nine patients were diagnosed with hypospadias. Among them, 16% are penoscrotal type hypospadias. Furthermore, there is only 3% of the patients who has a history of hypospadias running in the family. Approximately 29.4% of the patients associated with other genital anomalies. However, only 35% of the sample population underwent surgical repair at the age of 0-5 years.
