Özet

OBJECTIVE: Androgen (AR), Estrogen (ER) and Progesterone (PR) hormones play an important role in the prenatal and postnatal development of urogenital tract and especially the penis. The expressions of AR, ER and PR receptors in penile tissues in children with hypospadiases had also been shown previously. In this leading study, to demonstrate of the sex hormone receptor expression in cases with different types of hypospadias were aimed.
