Abstract

Undescended Testis: A Plea for Early Diagnosis and Optimal Management

Undescended Testis (UDT) is a common pediatric surgical problem, seen by general practitioners, pediatricians, general surgeons, urologists and pediatric surgeons. Unfortunately, the issues relating to management of this condition have not been addressed appropriately. The age at which the children with UDT undergo surgery is just one of the several vital issues concerning the problem, which consistently has not been matching the accepted norm, highlighting that more dissemination of information is required. Recent advances in understanding the descent of the testis have enabled more insight into the condition.

Keywords: undescended testis; cryptorchidism
