Ectopic testis - Definition


Definition


An ectopic testis refers to a congenital anomaly characterized by the abnormal positioning of a testicle. The affected testicle is situated outside of the scrotum, sometimes in suspension in the abdomen. An ectopic testis is predominantly observed in one newborn out of one hundred. In 50% of cases, before the third month the testicle moves inside the scrotum in a spontaneous fashion, and the same occurs before the first year in over 66% of cases. It is possible to fix the testicle in place by performing an orchiopexy.
