Researchers have identified a rising prevalence of hypospadias in Danish boys, according to a report in European Urology (2009;55:1022-1026).

The prevalence rose from 0.24% in 1977 to 0.52% in 2005, which corresponds with a 2.4% annual increase in prevalence, the investigators reported.

The findings are based on a study of 921,745 boys born alive during the 29-year span.
