|Abstract:||A case of cyst of the tunica albuginea associated with intraabdominal testes is reported. A 35-year-old man was referred for further examination of azoospermia. Bilateral testes were nonpalpable in the scrotum and inguinal region. Ultrasonography and MR imaging demonstrated a 9 x 8 cm cystic lesion in the median suprapubic area. An open operation showed the cystic lesion to extend to the right spermatic cord and vas deferens. Left intraabdominal testis was also identified. Right orchiectomy and left orchiopexy were performed. Histopathological diagnosis was a cyst of the tunica albuginea. Atrophic seminiferous tubules were recognized at the junction of the cyst and the spermatic cord.|
