In this study, we report a 3-year-old boy with severe scrotal hypospadias with Robertsonian translocation [45, XY, t(13q;14q)]. The patient was born at term with a low birth weight and hypospadias. There was no endocrinological abnormality. His father also has a balanced 13-14 Robertsonian translocation. Two-stage hypospadias repair was carried out. The presence of this chromosomal anomaly and hypospadias are unique to our patient, compared to others with the 45, XY, t( 13q; 14q) translocation. Although no such association has been reported so far, we thought that severe hypospadias in this case might be associated with this translocation. Copyright (c) 2005 S. Karger AG, Basel.
