Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Supernumerary testis or polyorchidism is a rare anatomical and congenital anomaly, and approximately 100 cases have been reported in the literature so far. It is often associated with processus vaginalis anomalies and with increased risk of malignancy and infertility. We report a case and its management, having left-sided duplex testis and found incidentally during inguinal hernia repair, and review the literature.
