Authors report a very rare malformation of the external genital organs in a male new-born who died 48 hours after birth. This malformation consisted in a total aplasia of the corpus cavernosum and bulbus penis with a fusiforme dilatation of the anterior urethra. The malformation was associated with an anal imperforation, bilateral cryptorchidism and renal hypoplasia.
