We report here the prevalence of hypospadias from 1980 to 1999 in 20 regions of Europe with EUROCAT (European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies) population-based congenital anomaly registers, 14 of which implemented a guideline to exclude glanular hypospadias.
Among the registries implementing the guideline (Paris, Tuscany, Northern Netherlands, Basque Country, Odense), two registries found that some cases of glanular hypospadias had been incorrectly included among registered cases (11 of 47 cases of verified location in Paris, 2 of 17 in Basque Country).
Six of the 20 EUROCAT registers in our study were found not to be following the EUROCAT guideline to exclude glanular hypospadias.
A further important reason mentioned by registries for not implementing the exclusion guideline was that the registry did not consider glanular hypospadias to be in fact minor, given that a large number of such cases were having corrective surgery.
