Introduction: Intra-abdominal undescended testes in adults is extremely rare, so is the development of a malignancy in it.
On our extensive search in literature, we could not find any documented case of an intra-abdominal undescended testicular neoplasm in adults managed laparoscopically. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first ever reported case.
Clinical Case: A 52yr old male patient with an intra-abdominal undescended testicular malignancy was operated laparoscopically while confirming with the oncosurgical principles. Histopathology was suggestive of a seminoma with tumour free margins. The patient developed no local recurrence in a follow up period of 6 months.
Conclusion: There is currently no universally accepted consensus of the role of minimally invasive surgery in the treatment of an intra-abdominal undescended testicular cancer.
Based on our experience, for an operable undescended intra-abdominal testicular malignancy, laparoscopic resection is an easy and a viable option.
