Transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) is an extremely rare variety of undescended testis where both the testes migrate to one side. Common presentation is non-palpable testis on one side and inguinal hernia on opposite side. Pre-operative clinical diagnosis may not be always possible and usually TTE is diagnosed during surgery for inguinal hernia. High-index of suspicion, investigations like ultrasonography and laparoscopy would help in pre-operative diagnosis and management.
