Diphallia , penile duplication PD , diphallic terata , or diphallasparatus , is an extremely rare developmental abnormality in which a male is born with two penises. When diphallia is present, it is usually accompanied by renal , vertebral , hindgut , anorectal or other congenital anomalies. There is also a higher risk of spina bifida. It is thought diphallia occurs in the fetus between the 23rd and 25th days of gestation when an injury, chemical stress, or malfunctioning homeobox genes hamper proper function of the caudal cell mass of the fetal mesoderm as the urogenital sinus separates from the genital tubercle and rectum to form the penis.

Diphallia or Double Penis: A Rare Genetic Condition
Please view with discretion. Two penises on one organism might sound pretty wild, but did you know it can occur on humans as well? About 1 in 5. Though diphallia is fairly rare on its own, actually finding someone who has the condition is made even more difficult by the fact that it usually accompanies highly deleterious congenital conditions, such as other duplicated organs or spina bifida. When the condition is severe, these defects are insurmountable. This change in expression is brought upon by mutations in the genes or environmental factors. Some have two penises that are of normal shape, size, and function, while others can have genitalia that is small, malformed, and unable to urinate or ejaculate.

The condition of having two penises is alone not dangerous. However, diphallia is associated with many other conditions that do cause medical problems.
