Associated anomalies of vas deferens are very rare and those that are described in the literature include fusion defects, supernumerary vas, discontinuity of vas and agenesis of vas. Herein, we describe a case of TTE with blindly ending vas and persistent M?llerian duct syndrome in a 2-year-old child. Orchidopexy could be done through the normal orthotopic route after separating it from the M?llerian structure and dividing the peritoneal fold just distal to the blindly ending vas. The report highlights that laparoscopy is useful for identifying subtle anomalies in addition to its therapeutic role...
