Female epispadias without bladder exstrophy is an extremely rare anomaly occurring in 1:480.000 girls. It presents typical features and can be diagnosed immediately at birth. Early surgical reconstruction of the bladder neck, urethra, and external genitalia within the physiological phase for the development for continence, is relevant towards establishing urinary conti- nence and to reduce the psychological impact on the parents and the child. In this case report we present a 3-years-old girl with isolated female epispadias who underwent total reconstruction at a single procedure with a follow-up of 6 months.
