Glossary for Undescended Testicle

  • 3-methylglutaconic aciduria, type 4: A rare genetic disorder where the body's cells are unable to make sufficient energy resulting in an accumulation in the body of 3-methylglutaconic acid. Type 4 is characterized by symptoms which overlap type 1 and 3.
  • Aarskog Syndrome: A rare genetic condition characterized by facial, hand, genital and growth abnormalities.
  • Adrenal hypoplasia congenital, X-linked: A genetic disorder which affects the body tissues that produce hormones. It is characterized by underdeveloped adrenal glands which results adrenal insufficiency and hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism.
  • Brushfield-Wyatt syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized mainly by mental deficiency, weakness on one side of the body and large port-wine stains that cover about a third of the skin's total surface. This condition may be a variant of another condition called Sturge-Weber syndrome.
  • CHARGE Syndrome: A rare disorder characterized by choanal atresia, coloboma, ear and genital abnormalities and congenital heart defects.
  • Cardiofaciocutaneous Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature, congenital heart defects skin anomalies and frontal bossing.
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia -- simple virilizing form in females: A group of disorder that occur when a deficiency of 21-hydroxylase impairs the normal process of making adrenal corticosteroids. The simple virilizing form involves a moderate deficiency of 21-hydroxylase and differs in its effects on males and females.
  • Congenital conditions: Any condition that you are born with such as birth defects or genetic diseases.
  • Congenital conditions -- physical defects: Congenital (birth) defects causing a physical structure defect (rather than metabolic).
  • Cornelia de Lange Syndrome: A very rare disorder involving delayed physical development and various malformations involving the head, face and limbs. The severity of symptoms is variable.
  • Cryptorchidism: Misplaced testes hidden in the abdomen at birth
  • Dup (2) (q11.2-q13): A rare chromosomal disorder characterized by various anomalies. The listed symptoms are those observed in one reported case. The manifestations linked to most genetic defects are often variable to some degree.
  • Ellis-van Creveld syndrome:
  • Endocrine system conditions: Medical conditions affecting the endocrine systems, such as the related hormones or glands.
  • Fluoxetine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Fluoxetine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Hydrocele: Swollen testes due to fluid
  • IMAGe syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized by retarded fetal growth, abnormal bone development, underdeveloped adrenal glands and genital abnormalities.
  • Infertility: The inability to produce offspring
  • Lissencephaly: A very rare disorder characterized by abnormal brain formation so that the brain surface appears smooth rather than convoluted.
  • Lowe Syndrome: An X linked condition characterized by vitamin D deficiency and causing an oculocerebrorenal syndrome
  • Male infertility: The inability of the male to reproduce
  • Male reproductive conditions: Medical conditions affecting the male reproductive system.
  • Men only conditions: Conditions affecting only males, and not females.
  • Mens Health Conditions: Medical conditions related to men's health.
  • Methotrexate -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Methotrexate during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Popliteal pterygium syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by cleft palate, pits in lower lip and popliteal webs.
  • Prune belly syndrome: A congenital condition where an infant is born without muscles in the front abdominal wall giving the loose skin a wrinkled, prune-like appearance.
  • Reproductive conditions: Medical conditions of the reproductive system in men or women.
  • Sexual Conditions: Any condition that affects sexual function
  • Testicle disorder:
  • Testicular Cancer: Cancer (malignant) that develops in the tissues of one or both testicles.
  • Testicular torsion: Twisting of a testicle's spermatic cord
  • Undescended Testicle: Congenital failure of one or both testes to descend
