a 17 year old male underwent unsuccessful repair of hypospadias in other hospital. He visit us seeking for redo repair . on examination there was fibrotic tissue , sever chordee, and the penis had ugly appearance . there was no healthy skin nearby the urethra to be use. So we decided to take a skin from another area of the body. the area that we choose is the Right loin because it was the only site which has no hair. after 6 months we arrange to do the second stage of the repair , but when we examined the graft, it was covered by hair. then we arrange for him a hair ablation sessions (laser). now he is ready for the second stage of the repair. (closure and tube formation)
