An empty scrotum?


Professor CR Thambi dorai

Failure of a testis to descend into the scrotum at or soon after birth is a common anomaly of the genitourinary tract. Correct and early diagnosis is important to avoid undue anxiety to parents and also to avoid or minimize any potentially serious sequelae. All medical practitioners dealing with children should be aware of the basic principles in the diagnosis and management of children with absence of testis in the scrotum.
