TUNDIDOR BERMUDEZ, Ángel Manuel. A new case of penile testicular ectopia. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.1, pp.65-67. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report a new case of penile testicular ectopia. Methods: We present the case of a three-year old boy who was diagnosed of penile testicular ectopia and underwent surgery. Results: Physical examination revealed an ovoid tumor in the center of the dorsal side of the penile root, together with empty left scrotum. Inguinal incision revealed the exit of the spermatic cord from the left superficial inguinal ring, which was directed to a testicle in a subdermal position in the root of the penis. Funiculolysis and orchyopexy were performed. Conclusions: The case here reported corresponds to a penile testicular ectopia of central localizations, with normal inguinal course of the spermatic cord.

Keywords : Penile testicular ectopia.
