Objectives: To establish a normal range of penile anthropometric parameters of infants younger than two years based on their age.

Materials and Methods: A total of 573 infants younger than two years were included in our study. Penile length and circumference were measured and the percentiles were established according to infants age. Variations of penile anthropometry in relation to age and another anthropometric parameters were evaluated using multiple linear regression models.

Results: The mean stretched penile length ± SD and mean penile circumference ± SD of all infants aged 1to 24 months were 38.82 ± 8.38 and 14.81 ± 3.09 mm respectively. Stretched penile length and circumference were affected by age, body weight and length (p=0.001).

Conclusion: This study provides reference values of stretched penile lengths and circumference for Turkish infants younger than 24 months. Our findings suggest that penile measurement abnormalities during routine healthy children examination may be a clue helping in detecting congenital or endocrine disorders.

Amaç: 2 yaş altındaki infantlarda; yaş gruplarına göre normal penil antropometrik ölçümlerin değerlendirilmesi amaçlanmıştır.

Materyal ve Metot: Bu çalışmaya 2 yaş altı toplam 573 hasta alındı. Penis uzunluğu ve çapı ölçülerek yaşa göre persantiller belirlendi. Çoklu lineer regresyon modelleri kullanılarak yaşa göre penil antropometri değişkenleri ve diğer antropometrik ölçümler değerlendirildi.

Bulgular: 1-24 ay arası çocuklarda sırasıyla, gergin penil uzunluk ± SD 38,82 ± 8,38 ve penil çap ± SD 14,81± 3,09 mm olarak saptandı. Gergin penil uzunluk ve gergin penis çapının; yaş, vücut ağırlığı ve boydan etkilendiği tespit edildi.

Sonuç: Bu çalışmada 24 aylıktan küçük Türk çocuklarının gergin penil uzunluk ve çap için referans değerleri belirlenmiştir. Bulgularımız rutin sağlam çocuk muayenesi sırasında doğuştan veya endokrin bozuklukların bir ipucu olabilecek penil ölçüm anormalliklerinin tespit edilmesine yardımcı olabileceğini göstermiştir.
