chordee

[kôr′dē, kôr′dā]
Etymology: Gk, chorde, cord
a congenital defect of the genitourinary tract resulting in a ventral curvature of the penis, caused by presence of a fibrous band of tissue instead of normal skin along the corpus spongiosum. The condition is often associated with hypospadias and is surgically corrected in early childhood. The goals of surgery are to improve the appearance of the genitalia cosmetically for psychological reasons, to construct an organ that allows the boy to void in a standing position, and to produce a sexually adequate organ.
A condition in which the head of the penis curves upward—dorsad—or downwards—ventrad—at the junction between the head and shaft of the penis; most cases are associated with hypospadias

chordee

Urology A fixed downward curvature of the penis, which may be congenital–eg, hypospadias or acquired–eg, due to gonorrhea

chor·dee

(kōr-dē')
1. Painful erection of the penis in association with gonorrhea or Peyronie disease, with curvature resulting from lack of distensibility of the corpora cavernosa of the urethra.
2. Ventral curvature of the penis, most apparent on erection, as seen in hypospadias due to congenital shortness of the ventral skin and, on rare occasions, in patients with a normally situated meatus.
[Fr. corded]

Angulation of the penis, when erect, usually as a result of a patch of scar tissue on the undersurface, or from the congenital deformity of HYPOSPADIAS. Chordee can seriously interfere with sexual intercourse. See also PEYRONIE'S DISEASE.
