Abstract

We report five patients who presented with seminoma of an undescended testis to highlight the importance of dealing with adult cryptorchidism. On the basis of the literature review and our experience, we advocate orchidectomy for post-pubertal cryptorchid patients of any age because follow-up may be difficult, and treatment for the tumour may be unsuccessful.
