Context Undescended testis is the most common endocrinological disease in the male newborn period. Incidence varies between 1.0% and 4.6% in full-term neonates, with rates as high as 45% in preterm neonates. Failure or delay of treatment can result in reduced fertility and/or increased testicular cancer risk in adulthood. Objective To provide recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of boys with undescended testes which reduce the risk of impaired fertility and testicular cancer in adulthood. Evidence acquisition Embase and Pubmed were searched for all relevant publications, from 1990 to 2015 limited to English language. Data were narratively synthesized in light of methodological and clinical heterogeneity. The risk of bias of each included study was assessed. Evidence synthesis There is consensus that early treatment, by 18 months at the latest, for undescended testes is mandatory to avoid possible sequelae regarding fertility potential and cancer risk. The current standard therapy is orchidopexy, while hormonal therapy is still under debate. However, in some individuals the successful scrotal placement of previously undescended testes may not prevent potential negative long-term outcomes regarding fertility and testicular malignancy. Conclusions There is good evidence for early placement of undescended testes in the scrotal position to prevent potential impairment of fertility and reduce the risk of testicular malignancy. No consensus exists on the various forms of hormonal treatment, which are assessed on an individual basis.

    Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest
    authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the
    same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work.
    If you're even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

    Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult
    to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!
