Persistent müllerian duct syndrome is a rare form of male pseudohermaphroditism. A case is reported of normal male appearance with bilateral cryptorchidism and a right irreducible inguinal hernia. On exploration, an uterus with two fallopian tubes and a testicle were found in the hernia sac. The uterus, fallopian tubes and left testicle were en bloc removed. Right orchidopexy and hernia repair were performed. In conclusion, if there is an adult bilateral cryptorchidism, surgeons should take into consideration a persistent müllerian duct syndrome.
