Bilobed testis

Dr Henry Knipe and Dr M Venkatesh et al.

Bilobed testis, also known as incomplete unilateral polyorchidism, is a very rare variant in children.


The exact etiology is unknown but is thought be a form of incomplete polyorchidism. It has been proposed that bilobed testis results from incomplete division of the urogenital ridge 1-3.
