We present a 31-year-old man with transverse testicular ectopia of the left testis. He presented to our surgical outpatient department with right scrotal swelling, originally diagnosed as an obstructed hernia, and an impalpable testis in the left scrotum. We performed a right herniotomy on the patient and found a large lobulated left testis and normal right testis in the right scrotum. Diagnosis of transverse testicular ectopia was made on the operation table, as the man originally came for repair of obstructed right inguinal hernia. This is the first case of transverse testicular ectopia we have come across since 1966.
