Cryptorchidism is frequently found associated with epididymal malformation that range from
simple epididymal elongation to a complete disruption between the testis and the epididymis.
Epididymal agenesis is rarely found in association with cryptorchidism. It is known as the absence
of the epididymis totally or segmentally, uni or bilaterally. We hereby present a case of a 4 years old
boy presented with right side impalpable testis. Laparoscopic exploration revealed Intra-abdominal
testis with short testicular blood vessels associated with the absence of right epididymis. Further
investigation showed the absence of the right kidney.
