Two rare cases of ectopic testis

J Urol. 1976 Apr;115(4):455-8. doi: 10.1016/s0022-5347(17)59241-1.


A case of pubopenile testis and a case of perineal ectopic testis are presented. The mechanism of descensus is largely positive, possibly facilitated by raised intra-abdominal pressure. The testis is usually guided by the gubernaculum and ectopia results from gubernacular failure. The ectopic testis is relatively rare but is easily recognized and treated by orchiopexy.
