Abstract: Undescended testis is a congenital abnormality with estimated risk of 4 % at birth. The majority of undescended testis are palpable in inguinal canal but about 5 % are intraabdominal. Intra Abdominal testis has the highest risk for carcinogenesis of testicular cancer among undescended testis. Nowadays, the existence of undescended testis in the adult population is rare due to elective orchidopexy in early year of life so malignant transformation of intra-abdominal undescended testis is rarely reported. We found a case of seminoma of undescended intra-abdominal right testis in 34 years old male which was treated successfully by open surgical removal in in our department.
