Sağlıklı çocuklarda penis uzunluğu ve testis çapı

Amaç: Ergenlik yaşının öne doğru kayması ile birlikte, yaşa göre erkek dış genitalyası ölçümlerinde de değişiklik olabileceği düşünülebilir. Bu çalışma, bölgemiz sağlıklı çocuklarında penis ve testislerin ölçümlerini değerlendirmek için yapıldı. Yöntem: Çalışma Ocak 2003 ve Aralık 2003 tarihleri arasında yapıldı. Yaş ve antropometrik ölçümlerine göre 0-18 yaş arası 1522 erkek vakanın çocuk kliniğinde kullanılmak üzere dış genital organlarının boyutları belirlendi. Bulgular: Ortalama penis boyları normal/gergin durumda sırası ile 0-28 gün 3.2/3.5 cm, 1-5 ay 3.7/4.0 cm, 6-12 ay 3.9/4.2 cm, 1-2 yaş 4.3/4.7 cm, 2-3 yaş 4.8/5.0 cm, 3-4 yaş 5.1/5.5 cm, 4-5 yaş 5.3/5.7 cm, 5-6 yaş 5.6/6.0 cm, 6-7 yaş 5.7/6.1 cm, 7-8 yaş 5.9/6.2 cm, 8-10 yaş 5.7/6.2 cm, 10-11 yaş 6.3/6.9 cm, 11-12 yaş 7.6/8.5, 12-13 yaş 10.8/11.8, 13-14 yaş 10.8/11.9,14-15 yaş 11.3/12.2, 15-16 yaş 10.8/12.0, 16-17 yaş 11.2/12.2, 17-18 yaş 12.8/14.2 cm olarak ölçüldü. Çalışmaya alınan çocukların ortalama sol testis uzun çapı 0-28 gün 1.1 cm, 1-5 ay 1.2 cm, 6-12 ay 1.4 cm, 1-2 yaş 1.4 cm, 2-3 yaş 1.3 cm, 3-4 yaş 1.5 cm, 4-5 yaş 1.7 cm, 5-6 yaş 1.8 cm, 6-7 yaş 1.9 cm, 7-8 yaş 2.3 cm, 8-10 yaş 2.3 cm, 10-11 yaş 2.7 cm, 11-12 yaş 3.7 cm, 12-13 yaş 4.6 cm, 13-14 yaş 4.2 cm, 14-15 yaş 4.9 cm, 15-16 yaş 4.3 cm, 16-17 yaş 5.4 cm, 17-18 yaş 4.7 cm olarak ölçüldü. Sonuç: Penis ve testis boyutlarında daha önceleri belirtilen yurtdışı ve Türk toplumu normal standartlarına göre değişiklik görülmemiştir.

Penile length and testicular diameter in healthy children

Aim: With pre-coming of pubertal age, it is assumed that measurable parameters of the male external genitalia may change with age. This study was therefore undertaken to investigate penis and testis measurements in healthy children in our region. Methods: This study was performed between January 2003 and December 2003. Diameters of external genitalia according to age and anthropometric measurements of 1522 male children between the ages of 0 and 18 were determined for use at the pediatric clinic. Results: Mean lengths of penis at normal/stretched position were as follows: 0-28 days 3.2/3.5 cm, 1-5 months 3.7/4.0 cm, 6-12 months 3.9/4.2 cm, 1-2 years 4.3/4.7 cm, 2-3 years 4.8/5.0 cm, 3-4 years 5.1/5.5 cm, 4-5 years 5.3/5.7 cm, 5-6 years 5.6/6.0 cm, 6-7 years 5.7/6.1 cm, 7-8 years 5.9/6.2 cm, 8-10 years 5.7/6.2 cm, 10-11 years 6.3/6.9 cm, 11-12 years 7.6/8.5, 12-13 years 10.8/11.8, 13-14 years 10.8/11.9,14-15 years 11.3/12.2, 15-16 years 10.8/12.0, 16-17 years 11.2/12.2, 17-18 years 12.8/14.2 cm. Mean left testicular longitudinal diameters of the children examined in this study were 0-28 days 1.1 cm, 1-5 months 1.2 cm, 6-12 years 1.4 cm, 1-2 years 1.4 cm, 2-3 years 1.3 cm, 3-4 years 1.5 cm, 4-5 years 1.7 cm, 5-6 years 1.8 cm, 6-7 years 1.9 cm, 7-8 years 2.3 cm, 8-10 years 2.3 cm, 10-11 years 2.7 cm, 11-12 years 3.7 cm, 12-13 years 4.6 cm, 13-14 years 4.2 cm, 14-15 years 4.9 cm, 15-16 years 4.3 cm, 16-17 years 5.4 cm, 17-18 years 4.7 cm. Conclusion: No significant differences were observed in penis and testis measurements when compared to those values reported previously for international and national standards.
