Cryptorchidism is a condition in which one or both the testes have not passed down the scrotal sac. It may be unilateral or bilateral. It is categorized as true undescended testes in which testes are present in the normal path of descent, and ectopic testes in which testes are present at abnormal site. Common complications of Cryptorchidism are testicular cancer, sub fertility, testicular torsion, and inguinal hernia. In a male cadaver, the right testis was found in the inguinal region. It was dissected properly and the scrotal ligament was observed to be attached to the pubic region. The left testis was descended normally. On doing pathological examination of both testes only senile degenerative changes were observed. Patient had lived a life for 78 years without complication and was died of acute peritonitis.
