Cryptorchidism refers to hidden testicle. It is a clinical condition where one or both testicles have been retained from entering the scrotum during the later part of the foetal period. Along with irreversible damage at both gross and cellular levels there is impairment of endocrine and reproductive functions of the testicles. As the incidence of cryptorchidism is very low and previously reported research and data on comparative findings between cadaveric and cryptorchid testes in the state of Bihar was not available this study was undertaken.
