Cryptorchidism: A developmental defect in which a TESTIS or both TESTES failed to descend from high in the ABDOMEN to the bottom of the SCROTUM. Testicular descent is essential to normal SPERMATOGENESIS which requires temperature lower than the BODY TEMPERATURE. Cryptorchidism can be subclassified by the location of the maldescended testis.Testis: The male gonad containing two functional parts: the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES for the production and transport of male germ cells (SPERMATOGENESIS) and the interstitial compartment containing LEYDIG CELLS that produce ANDROGENS.Spermatic Cord Torsion: The twisting of the SPERMATIC CORD due to an anatomical abnormality that left the TESTIS mobile and dangling in the SCROTUM. The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.Hypospadias: A birth defect due to malformation of the URETHRA in which the urethral opening is below its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the ventral surface of the PENIS or on the PERINEUM. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is in the VAGINA.Orchiopexy: A surgical procedure in which an undescended testicle is sutured inside the SCROTUM in male infants or children to correct CRYPTORCHIDISM. Orchiopexy is also performed to treat TESTICULAR TORSION in adults and adolescents.Testicular Diseases: Pathological processes of the TESTIS.Dog Diseases: Diseases of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris). This term does not include diseases of wild dogs, WOLVES; FOXES; and other Canidae for which the heading CARNIVORA is used.Dogs: The domestic dog, Canis familiaris, comprising about 400 breeds, of the carnivore family CANIDAE. They are worldwide in distribution and live in association with people. (Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, p1065)Testicular Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the TESTIS. Germ cell tumors (GERMINOMA) of the testis constitute 95% of all testicular neoplasms.Testicular Hydrocele: Accumulation of serous fluid between the layers of membrane (tunica vaginalis) covering the TESTIS in the SCROTUM.Scrotum: A cutaneous pouch of skin containing the testicles and spermatic cords.Epididymitis: Inflammation of the EPIDIDYMIS. Its clinical features include enlarged epididymis, a swollen SCROTUM; PAIN; PYURIA; and FEVER. It is usually related to infections in the URINARY TRACT, which likely spread to the EPIDIDYMIS through either the VAS DEFERENS or the lymphatics of the SPERMATIC CORD.Urogenital Abnormalities: Congenital structural abnormalities of the UROGENITAL SYSTEM in either the male or the female.WAGR Syndrome: A contiguous gene syndrome associated with hemizygous deletions of chromosome region 11p13. The condition is marked by the combination of WILMS TUMOR; ANIRIDIA; GENITOURINARY ABNORMALITIES; and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY.Pediatrics: A medical specialty concerned with maintaining health and providing medical care to children from birth to adolescence.Manuals as Topic: Books designed to give factual information or instructions.Chickenpox Vaccine: A live, attenuated varicella virus vaccine used for immunization against chickenpox. It is recommended for children between the ages of 12 months and 13 years.Rotavirus Vaccines: Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with ROTAVIRUS.Ligaments: Shiny, flexible bands of fibrous tissue connecting together articular extremities of bones. They are pliant, tough, and inextensile.Inguinal Canal: The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.Sexual Development: The processes of anatomical and physiological changes related to sexual or reproductive functions during the life span of a human or an animal, from FERTILIZATION to DEATH. These include SEX DETERMINATION PROCESSES; SEX DIFFERENTIATION; SEXUAL MATURATION; and changes during AGING.Macropodidae: A family of herbivorous leaping MAMMALS of Australia, New Guinea, and adjacent islands. Members include kangaroos, wallabies, quokkas, and wallaroos.Genitalia, Male: The male reproductive organs. They are divided into the external organs (PENIS; SCROTUM;and URETHRA) and the internal organs (TESTIS; EPIDIDYMIS; VAS DEFERENS; SEMINAL VESICLES; EJACULATORY DUCTS; PROSTATE; and BULBOURETHRAL GLANDS).Hepatitis, Infectious Canine: A contagious disease caused by canine adenovirus (ADENOVIRUSES, CANINE) infecting the LIVER, the EYE, the KIDNEY, and other organs in dogs, other canids, and bears. Symptoms include FEVER; EDEMA; VOMITING; and DIARRHEA.Disease Models, Animal: Naturally occurring or experimentally induced animal diseases with pathological processes sufficiently similar to those of human diseases. They are used as study models for human diseases.Spermatogenesis: The process of germ cell development in the male from the primordial germ cells, through SPERMATOGONIA; SPERMATOCYTES; SPERMATIDS; to the mature haploid SPERMATOZOA.Temperature: The property of objects that determines the direction of heat flow when they are placed in direct thermal contact. The temperature is the energy of microscopic motions (vibrational and translational) of the particles of atoms.Body Temperature: The measure of the level of heat of a human or animal.Radiology: A specialty concerned with the use of x-ray and other forms of radiant energy in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.Radiology Department, Hospital: Hospital department which is responsible for the administration and provision of x-ray diagnostic and therapeutic services.Radiology, Interventional: Subspecialty of radiology that combines organ system radiography, catheter techniques and sectional imaging.

International trends in rates of hypospadias and cryptorchidism. (1/499)

Researchers from seven European nations and the United States have published reports of increasing rates of hypospadias during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Reports of increasing rates of cryptorchidism have come primarily from England. In recent years, these reports have become one focus of the debate over endocrine disruption. This study examines more recent data from a larger number of countries participating in the International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Monitoring Systems (ICBDMS) to address the questions of whether such increases are worldwide and continuing and whether there are geographic patterns to any observed increases. The ICBDMS headquarters and individual systems provided the data. Systems were categorized into five groups based on gross domestic product in 1984. Hypospadias increases were most marked in two American systems and in Scandinavia and Japan. The increases leveled off in many systems after 1985. Increases were not seen in less affluent nations. Cryptorchidism rates were available for 10 systems. Clear increases in this anomaly were seen in two U.S. systems and in the South American system, but not elsewhere. Since 1985, rates declined in most systems. Numerous artifacts may contribute to or cause upward trends in hypospadias. Possible "real" causes include demographic changes and endocrine disruption, among others.  (+info)

Management of the impalpable testis: the role of laparoscopy. (2/499)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the use of laparoscopy in the management of the impalpable testis. DESIGN: A retrospective analysis of the clinical findings, interventions, and outcome in 87 consecutive boys undergoing laparoscopy for 97 impalpable testes. RESULTS: Fifty seven testes were either absent (n = 35) or present as a small remnant (n = 22), which was removed at contemporaneous groin exploration. There were 27 intra-abdominal testes, including four hypoplastic testes, which were removed laparoscopically. The 13 remaining viable testes were located in the groin. Conventional orchidopexy followed laparoscopy for 21 testes, and was successful in 17 cases. Two stage laparoscopically assisted Fowler Stevens orchidopexies were performed for 13 intra-abdominal testes, with eight satisfactory results. Ultrasound evaluation significantly reduced the number of conventional orchidopexies following laparoscopy. IMPLICATIONS: Laparoscopy is a rational and safe approach for precise localisation of the impalpable testis. Laparoscopically assisted two stage orchidopexy is a successful treatment procedure for intra-abdominal testes.  (+info)

Experimental cryptorchidism induces a change in the pattern of expression of LH receptor mRNA in rat testis after selective Leydig cell destruction by ethylene dimethane sulfonate. (3/499)

In the rat, the cytotoxic drug ethylene dimethane sulfonate (EDS) selectively eliminates mature Leydig cells (LCs) from testicular interstitium, activating a complex process of proliferation and differentiation of pre-existing LC precursors. We observed previously that after EDS treatment, the early LC precursors persistently express a truncated 1.8 kb form of LH receptor (LHR) mRNA. This prompted us to study whether experimental cryptorchidism, known to alter the process of LC repopulation, can influence the pattern of testicular LHR mRNA expression after EDS administration. EDS treatment completely eliminated mature LCs both in control and unilaterally cryptorchid (UC) rats. This response was followed by gradual reappearance of newly formed, functionally active LCs, as evidenced by the recovery in testicular LHR content and plasma testosterone levels in both experimental groups. Noteworthy, the rate of LC repopulation was higher in the abdominal testes of UC rats, in keeping with previous findings. Interestingly, the 1.8 kb LHR transcript was persistently expressed in scrotal testes at all time-points, but undetectable upon Northern hybridization in abdominal testes at early stages after EDS administration, when low levels of expression of truncated LHR transcripts could only be detected by semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis. In addition, the faster LC repopulation in cryptorchid testes was associated with precocious recovery of the complete array of LHR mRNA transcripts, including the 1.8 kb species. These changes appeared acutely and irreversibly, as unilateral positioning of scrotal testes into the abdomen resulted in a rapid loss of expression of the 1.8 kb LHR transcript, whereas scrotal relocation of the UC testes failed to alter the pattern of LHR gene expression. In conclusion, experimental cryptorchidism changes the pattern of LHR mRNA expression in rat testis after selective LC destruction by EDS. This change, i.e. repression of the 1.8 kb LHR transcript after EDS administration, is acute and irreversible, and likely related to the impairment of testicular microenvironment following cryptorchidism. However, even though at low levels, the expression of truncated forms of LHR mRNA appears to be a universal feature of proliferating LC precursors. The UC testis may represent a good model for analysis of the regulatory signals involved in the control of LHR gene expression.  (+info)

Ooplasmic injections of rabbit round spermatid nuclei or intact round spermatids from fresh, cryopreserved and cryostored samples. (4/499)

We compared the outcome of ooplasmic round spermatid nuclear injections (ROSNI) versus intact round spermatid injections (ROSI). Rabbit round spermatid nuclei and intact round spermatids were recovered and injected into rabbit oocytes (groups A and B, respectively). Fertilization, cleavage and embryonic development rates were compared. In additional studies, five protocols for cryopreservation of round spermatids and two protocols for cryostorage of round spermatids were applied. The outcome of ROSNI techniques using frozen-thawed or cryostored-warmed round spermatids was evaluated. The cleavage rate and the overall morula plus blastocyst development rate were significantly larger in group A than group B. ROSNI procedures are superior to ROSI techniques in the rabbit. The largest fertilization, cleavage and embryonic development rates after ROSNI techniques using cryopreserved or cryostored round spermatids were demonstrated in groups of round spermatids in which a mixture of seminal plasma plus test yolk buffer was employed as an extender, and dimethyl sulphoxide plus a high concentration of glycerol served as cryoprotectants. It appears that the seminal plasma contains factors protecting round spermatids during cryopreservation or cryostorage, and/or the employment of two cryoprotectants has a beneficial role in the maintenance of round spermatid reproductive capacity.  (+info)

Risk factors for testicular cancer: a case-control study in twins. (5/499)

Early life and anthropometric risk factors for testicular cancer were examined in a case-control study in England and Wales in which affected male twins were compared with their unaffected male co-twins. Questionnaire data was obtained for 60 twin pairs. Significantly raised risk of testicular cancer occurred in twins who had longer arms and legs than their co-twin. There was a significant excess of testicular cancer reported in non-twin brothers, as well as in twin brothers, of cases. Risk was also significantly raised in relation to cryptorchidism. The results on limb length suggest that factors, perhaps nutritional, affecting growth before puberty, may be causes of testicular cancer. The results on risk in brothers add to evidence of a large genetic component in aetiology of the tumour. The risk associated with cryptorchidism in the twins accords with the hypothesis that cryptorchidism is causally associated with testicular cancer because it is a cause of the malignancy, rather than because the same maternal factors experienced in utero cause both conditions.  (+info)

Improvement of spermatogenesis in adult cryptorchid rat testis by intratesticular infusion of lactate. (6/499)

In order to test the hypothesis that a lack of energy could be a cause of germ cell death at high temperatures, cryptorchid rats testes were infused with lactate, delivered by osmotic pumps over 3-15 days. In cryptorchid testes, the spermatids and spermatocytes were lost between 3 and 8 days. In cryptorchid testes supplemented with lactate, elongated spermatids persisted in a few seminiferous tubules at Day 15. Elimination of round spermatids occurred progressively between 3 and 15 days, mostly at stage VIII. The loss of spermatocytes increased after 8 days, and 30% of seminiferous tubules still contained meiotic or meiotic plus spermiogenetic cells at Day 15. After 8 days, the chromatin of step 8 round spermatids was abnormal and nuclear elongation did not commence. The Sertoli cell cytoplasm that was retracted toward the basal compartment of the seminiferous epithelium could not hold the germ cells of the adluminal compartment. Therefore, attachment of germ cells to Sertoli cells and the supply of lactate seem necessary for the development of germ cells at high temperatures. The improvement in spermatogenesis in cryptorchid supplemented testes for several days is a new finding.  (+info)

Incidence of testicular cancer in the United States: has the epidemic begun to abate? (7/499)

In response to a report that testicular cancer incidence in non-Hispanic White males in Los Angeles county had fallen in the 1990s, particularly in young men, the authors analyzed data collected by the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program from 1973 to 1995. While the incidence rate of testicular cancer in US White males ages 15-64 years did stabilize in the first half of the 1990s, after a number of years of a steady increase, there was no indication of an actual decline.  (+info)

Arrest of spermatogonial differentiation in jsd/jsd, Sl17H/Sl17H, and cryptorchid mice. (8/499)

The nature of the spermatogenic arrest in cryptorchid C57Bl mice and in jsd/jsd and Sl17H/Sl17H mutant mice was identified by studying whole mounts of seminiferous tubules. In all three types of mice, virtually only A spermatogonia were found, topographically arranged in clones of 1 to 16 (rarely more) cells. These clonal sizes are typical for undifferentiated spermatogonia. The proportion of these cells lying in chains of more than 2 cells (50-70%) was comparable to that seen in epithelial stages VII-VIII in the normal epithelium. It is concluded that in all three types of mice, spermatogenesis is arrested at the point where the undifferentiated A spermatogonia, specifically A(al) spermatogonia, differentiate into the first generation of the differentiating-type spermatogonia, the A1 spermatogonia. The remaining A spermatogonia were proliferating, but no accumulation of spermatogonia was present, as spermatogonial apoptosis also took place. Spermatogonial clones of all sizes were seen to undergo apoptosis, but there were relatively many large apoptotic clones, indicating that the clones became more vulnerable when they became larger. In contrast to what is seen in the normal epithelium, odd-numbered clones, not composed of 2(n) cells, were present, as well as clumps of 2 or more spermatogonial nuclei in the same cytoplasm, in all three types of mice. This indicates a lack of integrity of spermatogonial clones, also observed in other situations with a relative paucity of cells on the basal membrane. It is concluded that the differentiation of the undifferentiated spermatogonia, affected in all three types of mice as well as in vitamin A-deficient animals, is a rather vulnerable point in the spermatogenic developmental pathway.  (+info)

Men with Downs syndrome (DS) have an increased risk of cryptorchidism, but the mechanisms causing its onset are not clear. Cryptorchidism causes a primary testiculopathy responsible for infertility. SPAG5 mRNA is predominantly expressed in testis in pachytene spermatocytes. This observation prompted us to evaluate the expression of SPAG5 gene in five DS men with cryptorchidism and five normal healthy men (controls) by quantitative real-time PCR in peripheral blood leukocytes. We found that SPAG5 is over expressed in the five men with DS and cryptorchidism compared with five age- and sex-matched normal controls. This finding suggests that the increased expression of this gene may play a pathogenic role durin testicular development in subjects with DS and cryptorchidism..

The environmental niche of the spermatogonial stem cell pool is critical to ensure the continued generation of the germ cell population. To study the consequences of an aberrant testicular environment in cryptorchidism we used a mouse model with a deletion of Rxfp2 gene resulting in a high intra-abdominal testicular position. Mutant males were infertile with the gross morphology of the cryptorchid testis progressively deteriorating with age. Few spermatogonia were identifiable in 12 month old cryptorchid testes. Gene expression analysis showed no difference between mutant and control testes at postnatal day 10. In three month old males a decrease in expression of spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) markers Id4, Nanos2, and Ret was shown. The direct counting of ID4+ cells supported a significant decrease of SSCs. In contrast, the expression of Plzf, a marker for undifferentiated and differentiating spermatogonia was not reduced, and the number of PLZF+ cells in the cryptorchid testis was higher in three month

Undescended testicles (cryptorchidism) is the most significant risk factor for testicular cancer.. About 3-5% of boys are born with their testicles inside their abdomen. They usually descend into the scrotum during the first year of life, but in some boys the testicles dont descend. In most cases, testicles that dont descend by the time a boy is one year old descend at a later stage. If the testicles dont descend naturally, an operation known as an orchidopexy can be carried out to move the testicles into the correct position inside the scrotum.. Its important that undescended testicles move down into the scrotum during early childhood because boys with undescended testicles have a higher risk of developing testicular cancer than boys whose testicles descend normally. Its also much easier to observe the testicles when theyre in the scrotum.. Men with undescended testicles are about three times more likely to develop testicular cancer than men whose testicles descend at birth or shortly ...

Non-visible Testis (Cryptorchidism). External genitals in a toddler with a non-visible testis of the right side. The left testis is visible and palpable in the corresponding scrotum. The right testis is neither visible nor palpable in the scrotum. The diagnosis is cryptorchidism of the right side. First of all, the history and the clinical examination can possibly tell which type of cryptorchidism is present. Because the right scrotum is smaller than the left, the right testis must (if present at all) always lie above the scrotum. Notice the relatively high position of the left testis within the left scrotum. ...
Normally testicles develop in the abdomen, near the kidney, and descend through the abdominal wall, then through the inguinal canal, and enter the scrotum. Cryptorchidism (or undescended testes) is a condition seen in newborns when one or both of the male testes have not passed down into the scrotal sac. Thirty percent of cases are bilateral (involve both testes).. Undescended testes may occur for several reasons. Known causes may include hormonal disorders, abdominal wall disorders, and chromosomal defects. Retractile testes can occur in boys where the testicle descended completely but a muscle reflex causes a testicle to move back and forth from the scrotum to the groin.. ...
The majority of undescended testicles - i.e. those that can be found and palpated in the groin - are brought down by a simple day case operation called an orchidopexy. The procedure takes about 45 minutes, and involves moving the testicle into the scrotum and fixing a small hernia, which is often associated with an undescended testicle.. If the testicle cannot be felt, it primarily needs to be located. This is achieved with laparoscopy, placing a telescope into the abdomen via the belly button, and seeking out the testicle in a higher position. When located, it may be possible, usually through a 2 step laparoscopic approach, to bring the testicle down into the scrotum. If it is an abnormal testicle, or has failed to completely develop, it would be necessary to protect the remaining testicle on the other side, by performing a fixation of this testicle, within the scrotum. This prevents the possibility of twisting and/or damage, later in life.. ...

The distance between the two organs is twice the width of the testis corresponding to 1.5 to 2.0 cm. This anomaly is called testicular-epididymal fusion abnormality. The sperm which is produced later in life has no connection to the epididymis and spermatic cord. The latter may be interrupted, too, as an additional combined malformation. Both anomalies may be detrimental to the fertility which is often already diminished by the cryptorchidism, and must be described in the protocol of the surgeon. ...
MONDAY, June 17 (HealthDay News) -- Fetal exposure to the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) has been linked to low levels of a key developmental hormone in newborn boys with undescended testicles, according to an early new study..

Government studies have shown that 92 percent of Americans have detectable levels of BPA in their bodies.. This study focused on boys with cryptorchidism, the medical term for undescended testicles. The condition occurs in 2 percent to 5 percent of newborn boys, according to the authors, and requires surgery to bring the testes out of the abdominal cavity. Boys born with cryptorchidism have an increased risk of fertility problems and testicular cancer in adulthood.. The researchers found that boys with cryptorchidism who had high levels of BPA in their fetal cord blood also had low levels of the hormone insulin-like 3, or INSL3, one of two hormones that regulate ...
Beyond Pesticides, September 17, 2008) A new study has found a link between total chemical contamination in the bodies of pregnant women and the risk of cryptorchidism in their male babies. Mothers whose babies were born with the defect had the highest concentrations of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), mostly organochlorines like PCB and DDE, in their breast milk.. The study, entiltled "Cryptorchidism at birth in Nice area (France) is associated with higher prenatal exposure to PCBs and DDE, as assessed by colostrum concentrations," and published in the journal Human Reproduction, compared prebirth exposure to chemicals, as measured through their mothers milk, and the risk of undescended testicles or cryptorchidism, during a three-year period. 164 mother/infant pairs were used and within 3-5 days of delivery, the researchers collected samples of colostrums, or "first milk" from the mother. Colostrum is a form of breast milk that is produced late in pregnancy and immediately after birth ...
Cryptorchidism: A developmental defect in which a TESTIS or both TESTES failed to descend from high in the ABDOMEN to the bottom of the SCROTUM. Testicular descent is essential to normal SPERMATOGENESIS which requires temperature lower than the BODY TEMPERATURE. Cryptorchidism can be subclassified by the location of the maldescended testis.
Twin boys, both of whom had hypospadias and bilateral cryptorchidism, each developed a left-sided Wilmss tumour. The first twin was found to have an advanced multifocal tumour at the age of 15 months and died with local recurrence and pulmonary metastases. The diagnosis was made in the second twin one month later and at nephrectomy the tumour was found to be encapsulated without metastases; he is disease-free 12-years later. Although the histological appearances were similar in each twin, the tumours did not develop at the same rate and did not show the mirror-image pattern suggested for embryonal tumours in identical twins.. ...

Cryptorchism is an established risk factor for testicular cancer, but the role of age at surgical correction is unclear. The authors investigated this relation using information obtained from comprehensive medical records dating to childhood. They conducted a case-control study of 183 Kaiser Permanente members, who were diagnosed with testicular cancer during 1973-1996 and who were 15 years or younger when they first joined the health plan, and 551 controls. Notes pertaining to the testes were reviewed up to the cases diagnosis date or comparable date among the controls. The odds ratio for the association of a history of cryptorchism with testicular cancer risk was 4.8 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.9, 11.8). Compared with no history of cryptorchism, men with a history who had natural descent or successful orchiopexy by the 11th birthday were not at increased risk of testicular cancer (odds ratio = 0.6, 95% CI: 0.08, 5.4). However, successful treatment of cryptorchism only after the 11th ...
Cryptorchidism is a common anomaly that often warrants early surgical management. Preoperative identification and location of testicles can help to determine the optimal type of procedure and allow for appropriate advance planning. On the basis of the imaging findings, the surgeon can appropriately counsel the patient and alter the operative approach as needed. In the case of absent or vanishing testicles, imaging findings could obviate the need for surgical exploration altogether.. Various imaging techniques have been suggested for use in identifying and locating nonpalpable testicles preoperatively in young boys, with varying limitations including expense, invasiveness, technical difficulty, radiation risk, need for contrast medium, effectiveness in particular groups of subjects, and need for sedation. Because ultrasound, which is the least expensive and frequently used technique of all imaging tools, had been shown to have low sensitivity in identifying nonpalpable testicles preoperatively in ...

A ridgling (also spelled ridgeling), or rig, is a cryptorchid; a male animal with one or both testicles undescended, usually describing a ram, bull, or male horse, but cryptorchidism also can be an issue in dogs and cats. Because the heat inside the body is too high for sperm to survive, an undescended testicle is non-functional. The condition is most often discussed in the horse world, as the health behavioral issues surrounding adult males with the condition are of concern to owners and handlers of such animals. Although the rate that testicles descend varies between individual animals, horses over three years with the condition are generally castrated. Surgery called a cryptorchidectomy is used to remove the retained testicle, but different procedures are used, depending on the location inside the body cavity. An undescended testicle is not a serious or life-threatening condition, though it may cause the animal discomfort at times. This condition can be corrected by surgery to place the ...

Although the cause of testicular cancer is unknown, both congenital and acquired factors have been associated with tumor development. The strongest association has been with the cryptorchid testis. Approximately 7-10% of testicular tumors develop in patients who have a history of cryptorchidism; seminoma is the most common form of tumor these patients have. However, 5-10% of testicular tumors occur in the contralateral, normally descended testis. The relative risk of malignancy is highest for the intra-abdominal testis (1 in 20) and is significantly lower for the inguinal testis (1 in 80). Placement of the cryptorchid testis into the scrotum (orchiopexy) lowers the risk of malignancy if it is performed prior to the age of 13 (Pettersson et al, 2007). ...
Research published in Europes leading reproductive medicine journal Human Reproduction today (Monday 8 November) shows that women who took a combination of more than one mild analgesic during pregnancy, or who took the painkillers during the second trimester of pregnancy, had an increased risk of giving birth to sons with undescended testicles (cryptorchidism) - a condition that is known to be a risk factor for poor semen quality and testicular germ cell cancer in later life. [1]. The researchers from Denmark, Finland and France found that women who used more than one painkiller simultaneously (e.g. paracetamol and ibuprofen) had a seven-fold increased risk of giving birth to sons with some form of cryptorchidism compared to women who took nothing.. The second trimester appeared to a particularly sensitive time. Any analgesic use at this point in the pregnancy more than doubled the risk of cryptorchidism. Of the individual painkillers, ibuprofen and aspirin approximately quadrupled the risk of ...

I have been running non stop since Friday night. The holiday parties and errands for our foster son. I was bone tired last night and looking forward to some rest but Titus decided to have a fussy night. I slept in 40 minute intervals and was awoken for good at 4:45. I know, its a high class problem to have. I grumbled but treasured the hour of snuggle time he allowed me before he decided to play. Titus saw the pediatric urologist for his final post op checkup. He did spring a leak mid shaft. This is called a fistula and there was a 20% chance of it occurring. He will have a second surgery in February. He also has an undescended testicle. I suppose they will correct that within a couple of months of the fistula repair. Hypospadias and undescended testicles are on the same gene and often go together. If we get everything corrected Titus should have normal sexual function as an adult. The urologist really wants him to see the pediatric endocrinologist. Titus is still so very small. He is 13 months ...
Unlike an undescended testicle, a retractile testicle has descended fully at birth but rises out of the scrotum when the cremaster muscle contracts. The
Cryptorchidism is the failure of one or both of the testicles to descend into the scrotum. Symptoms typically include the lack of a testicle. Treatment includes neuter surgery.
Before being born, a puppys testicles are located within the abdomen. The testicles will start to descend into the abdomen upon birth and complete its descent when the puppy is approximately two months old. An undescended testicle is usually non-functional and underdeveloped.
Failure of the testis to reach the scrotum by birth affects more than 5% of newborn boys. Premature infants may be born before testicular descent has been completed (about 35 weeks gestation) or descent may be slightly delayed until just after birth. If one or both of the testes have not reached the scrotum by three months after normal gestation, the boy can be diagnosed with congenital undescended testis and will need treatment..

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.. Testicular cancer awareness. Testicular cancer occurs in the testicles which produce male sex hormones and sperm for reproduction.. Compared with other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare. But testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 34.. Testicular cancer is highly treatable, even when cancer has spread beyond the testicle. Depending on the type and stage of testicular cancer, you may receive one of several treatments, or a combination. Regular testicular self-examinations can help identify growths early, when the chance for successful treatment of testicular cancer is highest.. Factors that may increase your risk of testicular cancer include:. An undescended testicle (cryptorchidism). The testicles form in the abdominal area during fetal development and usually descend into the scrotum before birth. Men who have a testicle that never ...
Abstract: Undescended testis is the most common genitourinary anomaly in boys and is found in 2-4% of those born full term and 20-30% of those born premature. Spontaneous descent occurs in 50-70% of cases. Physical exam is critical and sufficient in the diagnosis and characterization of testicular location. As such, imaging is not necessary prior to referral to pediatric urology as it will not affect management. Testicular maldescent impairs spermatogenesis and increases risk for testicular germ cell tumors, so timely diagnosis and intervention are key ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Endocrine tests in phenotypic children with bilateral impalpable testes can reliably predict "congenital" anorchism. AU - Levitt, Selwyn B.. AU - Sobel, Edna H.. AU - Kogan, Stanley J.. AU - Mortimer, Robin H.. AU - Schneider, Keith M.. AU - Engel, Rainer M E. AU - Becker, Jerrold M.. PY - 1978. Y1 - 1978. N2 - Congenital anorchism is a rare condition. Bilateral impalpable undescended testes are relatively common by comparison. Surgical exploration has been regarded as the final arbiter between anorchism and bilateral cryptorchism. Exploration has not proved completely reliable in making this differentiation. Endocrine studies, particularly the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) stimulation test together with measurements of basal plasma gonadotropins, can reliably exclude "functioning" testicular tissue. Eleven fully evaluated and operated cases support this contention. In the specific clinical setting of a normal phenotypic male child with a 46XY karyotype and no müllerian ...

If the testicles do not move into the scrotal sac by themselves, surgery is necessary for undescended testicles. It is a routine surgery that can be performed laproscopically on boys of age 6 to 12 months. A small incision is made and the testicle is pulled down into the scrotum and anchored in place. After the surgery, the doctor will monitor the testicle to make sure it stays in place and functions properly ...
Most mammal reproductive systems are similar, however, there are some notable differences between the "normal" mammal and humans. For instance, most mammalian males have a penis which is stored internally until erect, and most have a penis bone or baculum. Additionally, males of most species do not remain continually sexually fertile as humans do. Like humans, most groups of mammals have descended testicles found within a scrotum, however, others have descended testicles that rest on the ventral body wall, and a few groups of mammals, such as elephants, have undescended testicles found deep within their body cavities near their kidneys.. Marsupials are unique in that the female has two vaginae, both of which open externally through one orifice but lead to different compartments within the uterus; males usually have a two-pronged penis which corresponds to the females two vaginae. Marsupials typically develop their offspring in an external pouch containing teats to which their newborn young ...

We are also concerned about our Pomapoo puppy,Butler, and his high ALP levels . We took him to have his undescended testicle removed, the vet came out and said his liver enzyme was above normal and it was best not to operate as dogs with shunts or MVD disease did not tolerate anesthesia well. At that time it was 170. He gave us medicine for a month (Dema???) sorry only the bag had the name but they were in a silver punch card type holder, about 10 to a card. We took him back, fasting, on the 28th and the ALP had risen to 407. The vet said we probably should do an ultrasound or biopsy. The second test was only sampled fasting,and the first was fasting and 2 hrs. After feeding. Butler is a happy playful 10 month old who is a little picky with eating. We tried several brands of wet and Prime one dry and Beneful. Because he was so picky, I started giving him stir-fried top sirloin beef, about 2-4 ounces at about 2 pm., or whenever he comes into the kitchen and tells me he is ready to eat. It sound ...

A 42-year-old man presented acutely with lower abdominal peritonism and a medical history of a right orchidopexy as a child. Further history from his mother revealed that during the procedure the left testicle could not be found. In view of his unusual history and the nature of the pain a CT scan was performed demonstrating a 10×8 cm solid mass above the bladder. The mass was removed electively and revealed a torted left testicular mass. Histopathology confirmed a torted seminomatous tumour. This case highlights the importance of returning undescended testes to the scrotum or confirming absence to preserve function and ease surveillance of potential future neoplastic transformation ...

Testicular ectopia is a rare genital malformation belonging to the spectrum of testicular migration abnormalities. Renal agenesis can be unilateral or bilateral, isolated or associated with other malformations (1/4 of renal agenesis is accompanied by genital malformations, and more often affects the left kidney. Few cases are reported in the literature. We report a case in a 28-year-old patient with ectopia of the right testicle in the suprapubic position associated with agenesis of the left kidney, and surgical management consisted of an orchiectomy, with good surgical results.

NSL3 could also have important endocrine or paracrine roles in other tissues. Although defective spermatogenesis found in INSL3 or LGR8 null mice could be the secondary effects of cryptorchidism, Leydig cell-derived INSL3 could play a paracrine role in the testis because LGR8 is also expressed in the testis. In females, INSL3 is expressed in the luteal cells of the ovary through the estrous cycle and during pregnancy [1] ...
Back-formation is the creation of a new word in the mistaken belief that it was the source of an existing word. Many back-formations are verbs, some of them derived from abstract nouns (ambulate from ambulation, diagnose from diagnosis, dialyze from dialysis) and others from agent nouns, real or supposed (beg from beggar, peddle from peddler, scavenge from scavenger). These examples of back-formations have achieved acceptance; however, many of those pertaining to medical jargon have not, including adhese, cyanose, defervesce, diurese, lyse, necrose, pex (from orchidopexy), plege (from cardioplegia), and torse.

During operation for a right inguinal hernia, a baby boy aged 3 months was discovered to have internal female genitalia. Biopsies were taken from the gonads and blood was sent for karyotyping. The biopsies showed normal testicular tissue and the karyotyping result was 46XY, so the diagnosis of persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) was made. Recovery was uneventful. At the age of 2 he underwent bilateral orchidopexy. PMDS is a rare disorder of the MIF synthesis or receptor. Patients present with cryptorchism, inguinal herniation of Mullerian structures, or problems related to the abnormal urinary tract, such as infection or stone formation. In cryptorchism, orchidopexy and life-long palpatory follow-up are advised. If urological symptoms occur, surgical removal of the Mullerian remnants may be considered. The prognosis for fertility is poor ...
According to a new study, boys whose testes have not descended into the scrotum at birth, may be nearly three times more likely to develop testicular cancer later in life.. Previous studies of the condition called cryptorchidism (undescended testes) have shown that in 5 to 10 percent of testicular cancer patients undescended testes were present.. However, it has remained unclear exactly how much a boys risk of testicular cancer is increased if he was born with undescended testes.. The new study was designed to answer that question and concluded that boys with undescended testes were 2.9 times more likely to develop testicular cancer. About 6 percent of newborn boys are born with undescended testes.. Researchers must now consider whether this degree of increased cancer risk means that boys born with the condition should undergo heightened surveillance for testicular cancer in addition to current close followup.. The study was published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood.. ...
This is a complete physical exam of the groin and the genitals, which are the penis, scrotum, and testicles. Your doctor will feel the organs and check them for lumps, swelling, shrinking, and other signs of a problem. A genital exam is an important part of a routine physical exam for every teenage boy and man. Baby boys should also have their genitals checked for problems they were born with, such as an undescended testicle. An undescended testicle is more common in premature babies than in full-term babies.. Testicular cancer is rare, but it is the most common cancer in men younger than age 35. It often appears as a painless lump or swollen testicle. In the early stages of the cancer, the lump may be about the size of a pea. In many cases, this cancer is found by the man himself or by his sex partner. The chance of cure is very high when this cancer is found early and treated right away.. ...
Undescended Testes - To all Concerned Moms, I hope you are all well. My son had a surgery (Orchiopexy) when he was 14months old (now he is 8)....
Several biological problems affecting the male testicles have been occurring with greater frequency over the past 50 years. The summary of the problem, which appeared in the 1993 journal, Environmental Health Perspectives(13), discussed the observed rise in testicular cancer and the medical conditions hypospadias and cryptorchidism, as well as the apparent declining sperm count among the overall male population. Hypospadias is when the testicles do not descend and cryptorchidism is when the opening to the penis appears on the underside of the penis.. According to the researchers at the Statistical Research Unit, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, cancer of the male testicles has increased over 3-fold from 1940 to 1980. The frequency of hypospadias (the opening of the penis on the underside) in England has doubled from 0.15% in 1964 to 0.36% in 1983. Similar increases were also reported from Sweden and Hungary. Recent British data also detected a near doubling of cryptorchidism. This problem has ...
Cryptorchidism is one of the few identifiable risk factors for the development of GCTs, although representing at most about 10% of cases. When present, cryptorchidism imparts a relative risk between 2.5 and 17.1 (7,8). This increased risk includes the contralateral testicle, even if descended normally or via orchiopexy. It is unclear if orchiopexy reduces the lifetime risk of GCTs, although data showing increased incidence even in the contralateral testicle support the theory that the etiology of GCTs lies in abnormal gonadal development rather than anatomic malposition (9,10). Men with a prior history of GCTs also have an increased risk of GCTs in the contralateral testicle, suggesting a genetic predisposition, although men with a family history of GCTs account for only 1.5% of patients with new diagnosis (11). A personal history of GCT carries an increased lifetime risk of secondary cancers, irrespective of histologic type (12). ...
Background: Cryptorchidism, or retained testicles, is one of the common congenital problems in dogs. The testes of cryptorchids are more prone to testicular cancer and infertility. Therefore, cryptorchids and animals carrying genes for cryptorchidism should be eliminated from the breeding population. Some evidence exists to suggest that it appears to be a multigenic trait but single genes with large effects may exist. In earlier studies, the researchers utilized a candidate gene approach using 50 polymorphisms (called SNPs) in 22 candidate genes and found that collagen 2A1 (COL2A1) was significantly associated with cryptorchidism in Siberian Huskies. Now, they need to use the whole genome association analysis which typically provides more comprehensive analyses of chromosomal regions associated with a particular trait. This will then allow them to confirm previous findings or suggest other contributing regions or genes. Objective: The researchers will utilize a new tool called the canine SNP chip
Testicular descent, which beings during the early foetal period, has been an area of research from the 1700s, when anatomists such as John Hunter began to notice the origin and development of the testicles and their location [10] [11] [12] [13]. The mechanisms behind testicular descent has been debated for at least two centuries, beginning with anatomical dissections on both human and animal foetuses during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries [12] [14], then enhancing with endocrinological discoveries during the twentieth century [10] [11]. Many theories were proposed and revoked since the discovery of testicular descent. One of the earliest debate was between John Hunter and Albretch von Haller, who concluded that the foetal testis is intra-abdominal and the processus vaginalis remains opened, contrary to the results published by Hunter [10] [13]. Hunters description of the gubernaculum as a vascular and fibrous foetal structure and the covering cremaster muscle led to further research and ...

Over 10 million people have been exposed to diethylstilbestrol worldwide between 1938 and the late 70s, early 80s in some countries. After more than 40 years of research, there are confirmed health risks and side effects associated with DES exposure.. An entire generation of women have had great problems with infertility and pregnancy. Women and girls as young as nine years old have died from a rare form of vaginal cancer called adenocarcinoma, others have suffered from irreparable genital malformations. Many DES sons have experienced health problems including undescended testicles, epididymal cysts, and testicular cancer. Yet, many doctors dismiss a history of DES exposure as the cause of their patients conditions - even for those who were born in the timeframe the drug was prescribed to their mums before a health warning was issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1971 and even for those who have evidence that they have been exposed before birth to this carcinogen and ...
Epididymitis or irritation in epididymis, a tube that links testicle with vas deferens, happens because of bacterial infection from urethra or bladder. The most common triggers for Epididymitis are chlamydia and gonorrhea. Additionally, it happens because of mycobacterium tuberculosis, E. coli, etc. Epididymitis is among the major pain causes.. Hernia. This is another significant reason for groin discomfort.Chronic cough and bowel problems, enlarged prostate, undescended testicles, overexertion, smoking, bad nourishment, etc are the major causes of hernia.. Renal Stone. Renal stone is the solid mass of tiny crystals. Genitals discomfort, testicle discomfort, irregular urine colour, vomiting, nausea or vomiting, a fever, chills, bloodstream in urine, etc would be the symptoms of renal rock.Lump within the genitals is a localized swelling plus it happens because of allergic attack, drug reaction, cancer, safe cyst, injuries in genitals area, infections in legs, lipomas, sexually transmitted ...

INTRODUCTION AND METHODS: In this review, we describe the common clinical scenarios that may be present to a paediatric surgeon when a patient has a disorder of sex development (DSD). Our aim was to prepare surgeons so that they can respond with correct approaches to diagnose and manage the given situations. RESULTS: DSD present in three distinct clinical situations: in the neonate with some abnormality of the external genitalia; in the child undergoing surgical treatment for inguinal hernia or during open or laparoscopic orchidopexy or during hypospadias correction; and at or after puberty, which may be precocious or delayed or in an adolescent girl with masculinisation at puberty ...

Le processus ancestral est appliqué pour étudier la variabilité génétique et la mesure de déséquilibre de liaison de séquences dADN, et faire de linférence statistique sur les divers facteurs responsables de cette variabilité. En tenant compte, en premier lieu, des facteurs de dérive génétique, de mutation, et de recombinaison, les calculs exacts de la mesure de déséquilibre de liaison de deux loci sont retrouvés. De plus, une approximation du processus exact, SMC (sequentially Markov chain), est utilisée pour trouver la mesure dassociation à deux loci, et une formule de covariance pour calculer cette mesure est corrigée. En intégrant le facteur de conversion dans le modèle de Moran, on trouve lespérance des mesures de polymorphisme exprimées par les espérances des mesures de variation intra-locus et inter-locus. Celles-ci sont calculées à laide de temps espérés dans les états ancestraux. De plus, lespérance du déséquilibre de liaison est trouvée et il est ...
Article courtesy of Aid West. In a break From my usual discussion on aspects of hIv, I decided to discuss what should be an integral part of all male sexually transmitted Infection (stI) screening, the testicular check. a routine stI examination in men should include a scrotal and testicular examination and as a physician, I believe it is an ideal time to instruct men on how to examine their testicles. once every one to two months should suffice. this examination, like a breast examination in women, is aimed at picking up pathology as soon as possible, thereby limiting morbidity and mortality. testicles should be checked for masses (lumps), volume (size), tenderness and cryptorchidism (hidden or obscure testes). a testicle less than 3.5cm is considered small and therefore not within the normal range. the medical term for a shrinking testicle is atrophy and may signal chronic disease and subsequent testosterone loss and infertility. and now the science bit! the testicles are in the scrotum ...
Gonadotropins are protein-peptide hormones, stimulating the development and function of male and female gonads. Synthesis and secretion of gonadotropins occurs under the influence of hypothalamic neurohormones (releasing factors). From the anterior pituitary identified three hormone that affect the function of the gonads: follicle-stimulating (FSH), luteinizing (LH), prolactin. FSH promotes the development of ovaries and maturation of follicles in them, it is also necessary to demonstrate the action of LH, in addition, it enhances spermatogenesis in male gonads. LH in women promotes the developed hair in a yellow body and lengthens the lifetime of the latter. In men, this hormone stimulates the function of the interstitial cells of the testes (it is also called a hormone that stimulates the interstitial cells), it causes activation of spermatogenesis is mainly the result of increased synthesis of testosterone, it also promotes descent of testes in the cryptorchidism; under the influence of this ...

Using paracetamol during pregnancy might affect the development of male babies, researchers in Edinburgh have shown.Paracetamol is the worlds most widely-used analgesic, and over two-thirds of women in western countries report using the drug at some point during pregnancy.There is evidence, however, that the agent might be linked to male birth defects, including the conditions hypospadias, where the urethra opens in the wrong place, and cryptorchidism, when the testes do not descend correctly into the scrotum.

Duker Weiss Siber syndrome: Microphthalmos, microencephaly, mental retardation, agenesis of the corpus callosum, hypospadius, and cryptorchidism
Cryptorchidism is associated with a several-fold higher risk of GCT. Abdominal cryptorchid testes are at a higher risk than inguinal cryptorchid testes. Orchiopexy should be performed before puberty, if possible. Early orchiopexy reduces the risk of GCT and improves the ability to save the testis. An abdominal cryptorchid testis that cannot be brought into the scrotum should be removed. Approximately 2% of men with GCTs of one testis will develop a primary tumor in the other testis. Testicular feminization syndromes increase the risk of testicular GCT, and Klinefelters syndrome is associated with mediastinal GCT. ...
For people with hyperuricosuria and calcium stones, allopurinol is one of the few treatments that have been shown to reduce kidney stone recurrences. Allopurinol interferes with the production of uric acid in the liver. The drug is also used in people with gout or hyperuricemia (high serum uric acid levels). Dosage is adjusted to maintain a reduced urinary excretion of uric acid. Serum uric acid level at or below 6 mg/100 ml) is often a therapeutic goal. Hyperuricemia is not necessary for the formation of uric acid stones; hyperuricosuria can occur in the presence of normal or even low serum uric acid. Some practitioners advocate adding allopurinol only in people in whom hyperuricosuria and hyperuricemia persist, despite the use of a urine-alkalinizing agent such as sodium bicarbonate or potassium citrate. Treatment. Stone size influences the rate of spontaneous stone passage. For example, up to 98% of small stones (less than 5 mm (0.2 in) in diameter) may pass spontaneously through urination ...

Noonan syndrome is characterized by facial features, short stature, congenital heart defect, and developmental delay. Other findings can include broad or webbed neck, unusual chest shape with superior pectus carinatum and inferior pectus excavatum, cryptorchidism (undescended testes), bleeding problems, and eye differences. Birth length is usually normal, but final adult height approaches the lower limit of normal. Congenital heart disease occurs in 50%-80% of individuals. Pulmonary valve stenosis, often with dysplasia, is the most common heart defect and is found in 20%-50% of individuals. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, found in 20%-30% of individuals, may be present at birth or develop in infancy or childhood. Other structural defects include atrial and ventricular septal defects, branch pulmonary artery stenosis, and tetralogy of Fallot. Up to 25% of individuals with Noonan syndrome have mild intellectual disability. Language impairments are more common in Noonan syndrome than in the general ...
Genetic predisposition to testicular germ-cell tumours Testicular germ-cell tumours (TGCT) are the most common neoplasm in young men. Various studies have suggested the existence of an inherited predisposition to development of these tumours. Genome-wide screens subsequently provided evidence of a TGCT susceptibility gene on chromosome Xq27 (TGCT1) that might also predispose to cryptorchism. However, this putative gene has yet to be identified, and other TGCT susceptibility genes probably exist. Completion of the human gene map and advances in genetic research will facilitate further investigation of genetic predisposition to TGCT. Insight into inheritance of TGCT might lead to the identification of individuals at increased risk of developing the disorder, increase our understanding of the mutation pathways that lead to sporadic cases, and contribute to improvement in diagnosis and treatment. Clinicians should record the family history of cancer and urogenital differentiation defects in patients ...
A hernia happens when part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a hole or weak area in the belly wall (fascia). The type of hernia you have depends on where it is and how it occurs:. • Ventral (incisional) hernias can occur through a scar after surgery in the abdomen.. • Umbilical hernia appears as a bulge around the belly button. • Inguinal hernia is a bulge in the groin (more common in men). Hernias are common. They can affect men, women and children. Usually, there is no obvious cause for a hernia. A combination of muscle weakness and straining, such as heavy lifting, may cause hernias. Some people are born with hernias or with weak abdominal muscles. Some people have a family history of hernia.. Physical activities and medical problems that increase pressure on the belly may lead to a hernia, including: constipation, chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, enlarged prostate, extra weight, fluid in the abdomen, heavy lifting, poor nutrition, smoking, and undescended testicles. There ...
