J Pediatr Surg. 1997 Sep;32(9):1362-4. doi: 10.1016/s0022-3468(97)90323-7.


Transverse testicular ectopia is rarely associated with persistent müllerian duct syndrome. The ninth pediatric case of transverse testicular ectopia with persistent müllerian duct syndrome is reported. The clinical and operative findings and treatment are discussed. The importance of abdominal exploration in the presence of two gonads in one inguinal side and the avoidance of dissection of müllerian structures has been stressed.
