Megameatus

After retracting the skin for a circumcision, this anomaly of the meatus was noted. Although the meatus starts in a normal distal position, it extends down the ventral surface of the glans all the way to the corona. This is a variant of hypospadias, but it occurs with a normal foreskin.
