 Undescended testis frequently associated with epididymal malformation, range from simple epididymal elongation to more complex forms, such as complete disruption between the testis and epididymis. The cause of cryptorchidism is multifactorial, although possible causes and risk factors, such as endocrine disorders, anatomical abnormalities and environmental and genetic factors, can explain the etiology of this phenomenon. Epididymal abnormalities may associated with severe impairment in sperm maturation and hindered transportation, with the future intrascrotal or extra scrotal position of the testis or early surgical repair being of little importance in terms of fertility. Our case suggests that blind ended vas may be associated with testis so one should search end of spermatic vessels if encountered with blind ended vas.
