However, this type of practice brings confidentiality, billing and surely productivity adjustments and must be avoided if physical examination is necessary as with phimosis and cryptorchidism
, respectively representing 14% and 8% of the referrals of our referrals.
The diagnostic impact of testicular biopsies for intratubular germ cell neoplasia in cryptorchid boys and the subsequent risk of testicular cancer in men with prepubertal surgery for syndromic or non-syndromic cryptorchidism
. Journal of Pediatric Surgery, 52, 587-592.
. A testis and the accompanying fallopian tube and uterus cause an inguinal hernia.
The take-home message is that cryptorchidism
is best to detect immediately after birth to avoid further complications.
About 1% incidence of cryptorchidism
is reported by 1 year of age, and about 20% of children with cryptorchidism
may have one or both nonpalpable testes.
Genital anomalies including micropenis, cryptorchidism
, and hypospadias have been reported in 30-40% of male patients with Kleefstra syndrome .
The cardinal features are craniofacial dysmorphism, short neck with webbing, skeletal malformations, heart defects such as pulmonary stenosis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, short stature, cryptorchidism
, and bleeding disorders .
In order to have an accurate diagnosis, the patient underwent abdominal and inguinal ultrasound on August 19, 2016, both with normal results, and also underwent a Doppler ultrasound (Figures 1 and 2) of the scrotal sac on the same day, which revealed bilateral cryptorchidism
, with no Doppler alterations.
Other findings include webbed neck, pectus deformities, cryptorchidism
, characteristic facies, coagulation defect, lymphatic dysplasias, and ocular abnormalities .
He had facial dysmorphism suggestive of Noonan syndrome including frontal bossing, downslanting palpebral fissures, thick lips, anteverted nose, low-set and posteriorly rotated ears and short webbed neck withlow posterior hairline, dental caries, thoracic deformation with pectus excavatum, hypospadias, cryptorchidism
, fingers' hyperlaxity, valgus flat feet, loose excess skin on hands and heart murmur (Figure 1).
These birth defects lead to disorders of sexual development (DSD), which include common defects, such as cryptorchidism
, or undescended testicles, as well as the genetic disorders Klinefelter Syndrome and Turner Syndrome.
No abnormalities such as cryptorchidism
, hermaphro-ditism, dilated bladder, other than a narrowed urethral process and orifice that caused penile urethral diverticulum were observed.
