The male and female genitourinary tracts are regions of the anatomy specialized in reproduction via natural insemination. These tracts can be compromised in a variety of ways, from agenesis or malformation of structures to glandular dysplasia and malignancy. For optimal comprehension, the medical students need to be well acquainted with the anatomy of the male and female pelvic cavities, embryology of the genitourinary structures, and the physiology of the gonads and glands adjacent to both tracts. A competent clinician must perform a thorough physical examination of the genitourinary tract, since it can very well be the first screening test for serious pathologies, such as prostate cancer or sexually transmitted diseases.
