Abdominal polyorchidism is rare. We report a case and review the literature. We suggest a very watchful abdominal evaluation of patients for a second ipsilateral testis who are operated for undescent testis. Polyorchidism is a very rare anomaly which requires definitive histological diagnosis. Although imaging techniques may be helpful in the diagnosis, it's mostly incidentally found in surgical exploration. Patients may present with pain or scrotal swelling. Most commonly abnormalities are maldescent (40%), hernia (30%), torsion (15%), hydrocele (9%) and malignancy (6%).
