The infrequency of congenital perineal testicle is best shown by the report of Grégan (Montpellier, 1913), who collected records of eighty-three cases up to the year 1913, but did not state what proportion of these were congenital, since this type is by far the more uncommon.
The literature dating from this time contains reports of three cases of perineal testicle, two of which were of the traumatic variety (Bevan, A. D.: The Surgical Treatment of Undescended Testicle, The Journal, Sept. 19, 1903, p. 718. Mulligan, R. A.: Proc. Roy. Soc. Med., London, 1912-1913, vi. Simpson, J. S.: Med. and Surg. Rep., Episc. Hosp., Philadelphia, 1914, ii).
I wish to report another case of the rarer type: the congenital form of perineal testicle.
The patient, a boy of 12, had complained for the past six months of pain in the perineal region when in the sitting posture, especially when suddenly arising
