Case Study
Perineal ectopic testis (PET) is a rarity in pediatric surgical practice seen in less than 10% cases of maldescended testis. An eighteen months old boy presented with empty right scrotum and a palpable soft mass in the perineum which on preoperative ultrasonography was consistent with testicular morphology. Orchidopexy was performed by standard operative technique and testis was placed in Dartos Pouch. The case is reported to highlight the importance of examination of ectopic sites in a cryptorchid child and the need for long term follow-up of patient.
