Abstract Introduction: Cryptorchidism is one of the most common disorders of childhood. This anomaly occurs when the descent of testis inhibited anywhere along it’s normal pathway between kidney and scrotum. There isn’t any study about testis agenesia in our region and the picture of the disease may be different in this region. The aim of this study ,is to determine more clear picture of this disease in our region and to consider that whether not to use diagnostic laparoscopy in this area can be lead to increased false diagnosis of testis agenesia or not. Material and Methods: This study is descriptive and basis of our study is to refer to hospital archive files, from all patients that admitted during 1996-2003,we found those who had UDT ,then all of required data including patient’s age ,unilateral or bilateral UDT ,associated disease ,site of UDT, diagnostic procedures, and first symptoms were extracted and then we analyzed this data. Results: Out of 7200 patients that admitted during 1996-2003 yrs, 235 patients had UDT ,according to this data the relative frequency of UDT is 3.26% . Regarding to age of patients most patients were in 5-14 y/o (41.3%). According to associated disease 14% had contralateral UDT, 8.1%had inguinal hernia, 1.7% had hypospadiasis , 6% had hydrocele, 0.9% had torsion of testis and 3% had infertility. Regarding to anatomic site of descent cessation, intracanalicular in 61.4% pts. Superficial inguinal pouch in 16.1% pts , intraabdominal in 14% pts, suprapubic region in 0.9% pts and agenesis of testis in 7.6% pts was found. Conclusion: According to this survey, the relative frequency of UDT was relative common and the most of operated patients are in higher range of age group(5-14yo).Which shows necessity of public education and also high incidence of testis agenesia(7.6%) suggests using of preoperative diagnostic laparoscopy in patients with nonpalpable testis.
