ABSTRACT: Duplication of the penis is an extremely rare anomaly. Approximately 100 cases have been reported since the first case report by Wecker in 1609. There are broadly three types of diphallus,viz. true diphallus with two independent penises, bifid phallus that may be glandular or complete and pseudodiphallus having a rudimentary phallus in addition to the normal penis. Numerous associated genitourinary and gastrointestinal anomalies have been described with diphallus. We encountered a complete bifid phallus in a 2 year old boy, with epispadias and a yentral preputial hoo, making the diphallic organ completely buried within it. In our exhaustive review of the literature, we did not come across any other case of this variety of the penile duplication that we termed the 'concealed or buried diphallus'. We did the corrective surgery in one stage with a good result.
