CT: Discontinuous splenogonadal fusion
Splenogonadal fusion is a very rare congenital anomaly which often manifests as a scrotal mass and rarely as cryptorchidism. It can be of continuous and discontinuous type based on the presence of a band of connecting splenic tissue

Case report : A 16-year-old male patient was referred to the urology department for evaluation of bilateral cryptorchidism. Physical examination demonstrated normal secondary sexual characters. Local scrotal examination showed empty scrotal sacs with oval soft tissue structure felt in the right groin, which was possibly inguinal testis. Ultrasound examination was initially done on GE Voluson E8 using 3.5 and 7 mHzconvex and linear probes revealed an oval-shaped testis-like structure in the right groin with normal testicular echotexture and vascularity and non-visualized left testis. Ultrasound abdomen showed few splenunculi in the lefthypochondrium and lumbar region and another oval-shaped mass with internal vascularity in left lumbar region. A diagnosis of intraabdominal testis was offered according to the sonography findings. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) abdomen was advised for further assessment.
