Background: Penile length is used to assess the external genitalia and abnormalities in external genitalia, e.g. macro and micro-penis. Early diagnosis of abnormal penile size is crucial, but proper assessment is mandatory to identify the normal population-specific, age-appropriate reference ranges.

Objective: Our study aimed at assessment of stretched penile length values for prepubertal Egyptian boys aged five to nine years in order to establish nomograms for penile length for this age group.

Subjects and Methods: Our cross-sectional study included1500 boys aged five to nine years recruited from the Pediatric Department in Cairo University Children’s Hospital, Faculty of Medicine. Children were divided into 5 groups (5-6 years, 6-7 years, 7-8 years, 8-9 years, 9-10 years; each group included 300 children). All children were subjected to weight, height, body mass index and stretched penile length measurements.

Results: The mean (SD) of the stretched penile length by age grouping were at five years = 5.31 (0.92) cm, at six years = 5.51 (1) cm, at seven years = 5.87 (0.85) cm, at eight years = 6.19 (0.93) cm and at nine years = 6.1 (0.92) cm.

Conclusion: This study provides novel reference values and percentiles for penile lengths for prepubertal Egyptian boys aged 5–9 years that can be used by physicians.
