Abstract

Chordee is an abnormal curvature of the penis detected on erection. Congenital or primary curvature of the penis without hypospadias is, however, rare. There are two kinds of primary curvatures; those associated with a normal corpus spongiosum and those with a hypoplastic spongiosum. Secondary curvatures associated with Peyronie's disease or periurethral fibrosis associated with urethral stricture are more common in adults. Four nonhuman primates had successful correction of artificially induced chordee with a graft of fascia lata.
