Abstract :

Polyorchidism is a rare congenital anomaly described as the presence of more than two testes. The aetiology of this condition is unknown but it was first described by Blasius in 1670 as an incidental finding during an autopsy. This is an uncommon condition particularly with an undescended testis and usually diagnosed at early life. We present a case report of 81 year old with undescended supernumerary testis and to our knowledge this is the oldest age at presentation. We will also discuss the relevant embryological development.
