Undescended testis is the most common defect in newborn boys. It is associated with increased risks of infertility and testicular malignancy due to abnormal germ cell development in these testes. Early surgery may limit such risks. The aim of our study was to analyse germ cell development verses age of orchidopexy using a germ cell marker and a Sertoli cell marker on testicular biopsies.
