It is characterized by a widely splayed coronal or subcoronal meatus, a deep glanulargroove, a normally conformed prepuce, and no chordee.In this case, good cosmetic and functional outcomes, such as achievement of a straight urine stream and patient satisfaction, were achieved using the tubularized incised plate (TIP) procedure.
