Background: Cryptorchidism is a defect in the time of fetus development, in which one or both of testes don’t reach to scrotum. This situation causes some important complication such as testis cancer, inguinal hernia, and infertility. The delay in treatment increases the risk of complications. The methods of treatment are hormone therapy and surgery, regarding to this fact that the first method is less successful surgery in the first year of the life is considered the best. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ages of cryptorchidism and the diagnosed complications at the time of surgery, in Kashan Naghavi Hospital.

Materials and Methods: A descriptive study was performed on 50 patients with cryptorchidism, referring to Kashan Naghavi hospital during March 2002 until March 2004. Age of patients, laterality, surgical finding and reason for delayed referring were recorded.

Results: Age of patients ranged 8 month to 27 years old. Mean age was 9 years old. Post-surgical diagnoses were 36 inguinal testes, 46 (92%) unilateral, 4 (8%) bilateral, 14 (28%) atrophic testes and 11 (22%) inguinal hernias. The most important reasons for postponed treatment were ignorance of the parents 28 (56%) and delayed diagnosis 14 (28%).

Conclusion: Early detection of cryptorchidism is of high importance. Screening for this situation and referring the suspected cases for early treatment are recommended.
