Cryptorchidism may have significant impact on the psycho-social wellbeing of a child that if not detected could result in low self-esteem and poor scholastic achievement. It may be congenital or acquired; in acquired cryptorchidism the testes would have descended into the scrotum and then subsequently ascended into the inguinal canal or abdomen. Although congenital cryptorchidism is commonly associated with prematurity and diseases such as prune-belly syndrome, Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndromes; acquired cryptorchidism (unlike retractile testes) is rare. Therefore, the case of an 11-year-old boy with acquired cryptorchidism associated with spastic cerebral palsy, which was omitted, is reported. This affected his relationship with his peers and also resulted in poor school attendance.
