A 19 year old male presented with a swelling on the dorsal aspect of the penis at its root, more on the right side of the midline, since birth (Fig). It was painless, spherical, soft, non-tender, mobile and measured 2.5 X 2.5 cm. Cord structures were palpable on the left side and extended up to the proximal end of swelling which was on right prepubic area. Scrotum was well developed bilaterally but was empty on the left side. Right testis and cord were normal. Secondary sexual characters were well developed. Routine investigations and the semen analysis were within normal limits. A provisional diagnosis of a left ectopic testis was made and left inguinal exploration was performed. A normal sized testis with normal cord structures was seen on the right side of the root of the penis. The testis was easily mobilized and was repositioned in the left scrotal sac within a sub-dartos pouch. Testicular tissue was collected for histological examination. No hernial sac was encountered. Post-operative recovery was uneventful. Histological report showed normal adult testicular tissue.
