The development of focal orchitis in cryptorchid
testes has been reported in experimental cryptorchidism in laboratory animals.
The median level of maternal serum triglycerides was slightly lower for hypospadias cases (188 [micro]g/L) compared with cryptorchid
cases (204 [micro]g/L) or controls (204 [micro]g/L).
For the present study, the ratio of hypospadias to cryptorchidism was somewhat higher than might be expected because we included hypospadias diagnosed up until 7 years of age, whereas we excluded cryptorchid
cases diagnosed after 1 year.
Milk from mothers of 29 cryptorchid
boys and 36 randomly chosen control boys was included in Denmark.
Answers to questions on alcohol consumption and binge episodes were missing more frequently in mothers of cryptorchid

Four Danish and 25 Finnish boys were still cryptorchid
at 3 months of age, whereas the others (25/8) had spontaneous descent.
0001) values also were lower for boys with hypospadias than for cryptorchid
boys (Table 1, Figures 1 and 2).
Routine pelvic ultrasound was recommended by Adamsbaum et al, in bilaterally cryptorchid
patients and in patients with inguinal hernia of unusually hard consistency (5).
In one study, which examined biopsies from prepubertal cryptorchid
testes taken at the time of orchiopexy, cells that were "morphologically identical" to IGCNU, including positive staining for placental alkaline phosphatase, were identified in 22 of 440 patients (5%).
A dog with this condition is called cryptorchid
and the testicle that does not drop is usually non-functional.
They carried out tests, which revealed the first ever genetic alteration ever detected in the reproductive system of this breed - the female puppy had cryptorchid
testicles (outside the scrotum).
