Abstract

A child with a left non-palpable testis underwent surgery for an incarcerated right inguinal hernia. During the operation a left crossed ectopic testis was found at the internal ring and was brought down into the left hemiscrotum through a suprapubic tunnel. The literature is reviewed and this approach of orchidopexy of crossed testis is discussed.
