An unusual case of testicular ectopia.


:A testis is termed ectopic when it lies outside the normal line of descent. A case of testicular ectopia in which the testicle was located cranial and lateral to the internal ring dorsal to the external oblique muscle is reported in a 2-month-old boy. This highly aberrant ectopic testis was treated successfully by orchiopexy; as far as we know, this is the second such case in the literature.
