During routine cadaveric dissection of lower abdomen and groin region for first M.B.B.S students in department of anatomy, Shri Bhausaheb Hire Government Medical College, Dhule, a case of bilateral undesended testes was found in formalin fixed male cadaver. Cryptorchidism is a condition in which testes fail to move down to scrotum. In some children testes reach to scrotum but later on rise above, these are known as acquired undescended testes. Although exact cause of undescended testis is not known but failure of formation of androgens is important cause. If both testes are undescended, they may remain immature and results in infertility. Uncorrected cases may develop germ cell tumor.
