The term “crossed testicular ectopia” (CTE) means the deviation from the normal path of descent resulting in unilaterality of both testes. The condition is mostly detected incidentally during repair of inguinal hernia or laparoscopic evaluation of impalpable undescended testis. Preoperative identification of this anomaly is feasible during the clinicoradiological evaluation of the genito-urinary abnormalities. Orchiopexy (transeptal/extraperitoneal transposition/laparoscopy-assisted) is the mode of surgical management. We present here two cases of CTE where laparoscopy-assisted trans-inguinal orchiopexy was done.
