Hypospadias

Hypospadias is a birth defect in boys in which the opening of the urethra is not located at the tip of the penis. In boys with hypospadias, the urethra forms abnormally during weeks 8–14 of pregnancy. The abnormal opening can form anywhere from just below the end of the penis to the scrotum. There are different degrees of hypospadias; some can be minor and some more severe. Read more about Hypospadias.

In order to further refine the data being displayed, some advanced options are available at the state level. Users can filter results by:

  • Infant gender
  • Maternal age group
  • Maternal race/ethnicity

The low frequency of individual births defects means that most county level measures are suppressed due to counts of 5 or less.

Measure Description:

  • The Prevalence per 10K Live Births is the number of live-born male infants diagnosed with the selected birth defect per 10,000 live male births during the stated five year period.
