The combination of undescended testes and epididymal duplication is rare and only two such cases were observed in the last decade at an institution handling a large number of undescended testes in children. One of the two boys also had an associated aplasia of the Duct. deferens. While in the other boy the continuity of the Duct. deferens was preserved. The embryology, the causes and associated malformations are discussed, as well as the possible combination with cystic fibrosis.
