Abstract

The current evidence for the management of retractile testes is discussed in this review. Issues such as clinical definitions, natural history, possible outcomes and evidence for surgical intervention are evaluated. After reviewing the literature, the authors summarize that currently there is not enough evidence to warrant surgery for retractile testes, but rather a strategy of surveillance should be adopted.
