Adolf Hitler’s Tiny Penis: Medical Records Reveal Nazi Leader Had ‘Deformed Micropenis’

Well, this may explain a lot.

Adolf Hitler is remembered for a lot of deplorable acts. As military leader of the Nazi Party and Germany’s dictator, Hitler was responsible for the deaths of six million Jewish people in Europe around the time of World War II in what would become known as the Holocaust. A variety of factors have been attributed to Hitler’s prejudicial and homicidal mindset, including the death of his brother and detachment from his father.

Now it seems that medical records obtained after Hitler was arrested in 1923 tell a different story behind his reign of terror. In the book “Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute,” historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie reveal that Hitler suffered from “a rare condition called penile hypospadias in which the urethra opens on the underside of the penis." Not only did hypospadias leave the Führer with a micropenis, but it also caused him to urinate from a hole on the shaft of his penis as opposed to the tip. 

Hitler’s medical woes didn’t end there. Records also showed Hitler had suffered from “right-side cryptorchidism,” or an undescended testicle. The examination that led to Hitler’s genitalia becoming a matter of public record was conducted by Dr. Josef Steiner Brin at The Landsberg Prison in 1923. He served one year at Landsberg after he was found guilty of high treason for his part in the Beer Hall Putsch – a failed military coup that took place inside a beer hall in Munich.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hypospadias is a birth defect in boys that causes the urethra to form abnormally during weeks eight to 14 of pregnancy. Hypospadias can range in severity depending on where the opening of the urethra is located. Subcoronal hypospadias occurs when the opening is located closer to the head of the penis. Midshaft occurs when it’s located along the shaft. Penoscrotal occurs when it’s located where the penis and scrotum meet. Five out of every 1,000 boys in the United States are born with hypospadias.

Since penis size is often tied to self-esteem and confidence issues, it’s very possible Hitler’s micropenis played a role in the never-ending list of mental health issues he is accused of having, including paranoia, anxiety, insomnia, depression, schizophrenia, etc. It could also be related to the copious amounts of illicit drugs Hitler and his soldiers ingested on the way to their defeat at the hands of Allied troops.
