In this report, we present three different varieties of congenital anterior urethrocutaneous fistula. The anterior urethrocutaneous fistula was associated with no urethra, hypoplastic urethra, and normal urethra, distal to fistula, 1 in each patient. Each required a different treatment strategy. Postoperative outcome was good in all cases.
