Bladder Exstrophy

Bladder exstrophy, a rare birth defect where the bladder is not contained inside the abdomen, but is visible on the outside of the body. This condition is more common among boys than it is among girls. Children with bladder exstrophy often have other abnormalities, such as an unusually wide pelvic bone structure or problems with abdominal muscles. Girls with bladder exstrophy may have a urinary opening in the wrong place, or one that’s very large or misshapen. Girls with bladder exstrophy also may have a split clitoris. Boys with bladder exstrophy may have a deformed penis, or it may be curved downward. Boys with bladder exstrophy also may have an unusually short urethra, or one that’s on the upper part of the penis, instead of on the tip.
