Abstract

A 9-year-old boy presented for evaluation of bilateral nonpalpable testes. Despite a negative human Chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) simulation test, laparoscopy found high undescended testicles on both sides. The authors report the unusual microvascular approach utilized to accomplish testicular transfer into the scrotum and discuss the diagnostic difficulties experienced in this case.
