Abstract
Purpose: We aimed to elucidate the prevalence of urologic disease in young men by reviewing the results of military conscription examinations in the Republic of Korea. Materials and Methods: The results of 615,382 conscription examinations undertaken by the military manpower administration offices in Seoul, Korea from January, 2006 to December, 2007 were reviewed. The physical examinations were conducted based on the Ministry of National Defense implementing ordinance No. 590. Results: Twenty eight hundred fifty-three (0.46%) examinees were found to have urologic diseases, among which urinary tract infection was the most frequent (0.16%) single disease entity, followed by testicular absence (0.12%), single kidney (0.05%), varicocele (0.04%), urolithiais (0.03%), and cryptorchidism (0.01%). Among the 16 examinees with penile amputation, 15 had been surgically amputated due to gender identity problems. Conclusions: With modifications of the Korean conscription examination and long-term evaluation, its results could help elucidate the prevalence of urologic diseases in young males in Korea.
