Undescended testis is one of the most common congenital anomaly in pediatric urology.Hormonal impairment, an abnormal testicular structure or anatomic obstruction have been implicated in the aetiology of this anomaly. The gubernaculums testis, derived from the embryonic mesenchyme, extends from the testis to the epididymis and into the scrotum. This relationship between gubernaculum and epididymis explains why undescended testis is often associated with epididymal abnormalities. We present here one such abnormality, complete non-fusion of the testis and epididymis in a case of cryptorchidism.
