Term Detail
MP term:abnormal urethra morphology
Synonym: abnormal urogenital canal morphology
Synonym: urethra abnormalities
Synonym: urethra dysplasia
MP id: MP:0000537
Definition: any structural anomaly of the fibromuscular tubular canal through which urine is discharged from the bladder to the exterior via the external urinary meatus; in males, the urethra is joined by the ejaculatory ducts and serves as a passageway for semen during ejaculation, as well as a canal for urine during voiding; in females, the urethra is shorter and emerges above the vaginal opening
