Urethrocutaneous fistula (UCF) is one of the most common complications of hypospadias repair (HR). We present an unusual combined lateral and dorsal subcoronal (CLDSC) UCFs. Dorsal UCF has not been reported in children yet. A 10-year-old patient was admitted with the complaint of CLDSC UCFs following HR. A long fistula tract from the urethral meatus to the dorsal fistula orifice was excised together with urethroplasty. The patient did well postoperatively. Dorsal penile UCF is an unusual complication; but if it occurs, total excision of the fistula tract together with urethroplasty could be considered to prevent further complications.
