Abstract

The cause of cryptorchidism remains obscure. Hormonal therapy is ineffective for most patients and initial response may be temporary. Surgery remains the most effective treatment for cryptorchidism. Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency in the postnatal infant and the pubertal male. Controversy surrounds the management of prenatal torsion.
