Abstract

Congenital absence of bilateral pubic bones is extremely uncommon. A 2-year-old boy presented with a history of intoeing at our outpatient clinic. The testes were found located at the inguinal canal on ultrasonography. A pelvic radiograph and a spiral computed tomography scan of the pelvis with three-dimensional reconstruction revealed the absence of both pubic bones. In conclusion, we report that the absence of the pubic bones, either as an isolated finding or associated with undescended testes, is peculiar.
