83 Possible Causes for Congenital Absence of the Testis

  • Congenital Absence of the Testis

    PURPOSE: Congenital absence of the testis is believed to be secondary to prenatal torsion, differing from the isolated undescended testis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The right sided syndrome, congenital absence of kidney and testis.[sjkdt.org] In conclusion, congenital absence of one testis stimulates FSH secretion and testicular growth without change of the response to HCG.[nature.com]

  • Cryptorchidism

    absence or maldescent, a testis observed in the scrotum in early infancy can occasionally "reascend" (move back up) into the inguinal canal.[en.wikipedia.org] […] these risks, undescended testes can be brought into the scrotum in infancy by a surgical procedure called an orchiopexy. [3] Although cryptorchidism nearly always refers to congenital[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Congenital Absence of the Vas Deferens

    The right sided syndrome, congenital absence of kidney and testis.[sjkdt.org] Of men with unilateral congenital absence of the vas deferens and infertility 80% had genitourinary anamalies affecting the contralateral testis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Undescended testis with congenital unilateral absence of the vas deferens.

  • Testicular Torsion

    Testicular torsion and acute incarcerated inguinal hernia are both common surgical emergencies in the paediatric population. We present the unusual case of a 16-year-old adolescent boy who presented with both of these conditions concurrently. He had a history of a right inguinal hernia, but ultrasound confirmed a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pleuropulmonary Blastoma

    Note: In cases of the removal of one testis as the result of a service-incurred injury or disease, other than an undescended or congenitally undeveloped testis, with the absence[militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com] Testis, undescended, or congenitally undeveloped is not a ratable disability. 7525 Epididymo-orchitis, chronic only: Rate as urinary tract infection.[militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com] […] or nonfunctioning of the other testis unrelated to service, an evaluation of 30 percent will be assigned for the service-connected testicular loss.[militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com]

  • Noonan Syndrome

    Noonan syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic condition characterized by distinctive facial features, short stature, cardiac defects, coagulopathy, skeletal abnormalities, and normal to mild cognitive impairment. In most affected individuals, it is a result of mutations in one or more of the following genes: PTPN11,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Spigelian Hernia

    It includes four congenital, ipsilateral components: a defect in the Spigelian fascia, a hernia sac containing undescended testis, absence of gubernaculum and inguinal canal[jpss.eu] Conclusion Congenital Spigelian hernia containing testis is a very rare entity in infants. This association may be a distinct clinical syndrome.[jpss.eu] Other multiple congenital anomalies may associate the syndrome. The exact mechanism behind this syndrome remains unknown and more cases are needed to be studied.[jpss.eu]

  • Orchiectomy

    We report 3 cases of postradical orchiectomy hemorrhage from separate institutions. The retroperitoneal and pelvic hematoma formed as a complication of orchiectomy can be misinterpreted to represent metastatic disease on postoperative staging computed tomography scans. As a result of inaccurate information[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
