Cryptoorchidism or undescended testis is the most common congenital genitourinary disorder in boys. The true undescended testis has stopped along the path way of normal descent, while ectopic testis is in an aberrant location, such as the base of the penis, superficial inguinal pouch, medial aspect of the upper thigh, or the contra lateral scrotal sac. The undescended or ectopic are both referred to as maldescended testis. We report a case of a 30 months old child with ectopic right testis at the dorsum of the base of the penis who was managed by orchidopexy.
