Abstract

Symphyseal diastasis in the absence of exstrophy or epispadias is rare. We reviewed 11 reported cases and present 2 of our own. Based upon our findings, we recommend a thorough physical examination in all patients. A voiding cystourethrogram in those with the radiographic finding of symphyseal diastasis in the absence of exstrophy or epispadias may be helpful. A significant number of patients have associated congenital anomalies.
