What is Anorchidia?

  • Anorchidia: A rare birth defect where the testes are absent. The testes may regress at any stage of fetal development. The stage of fetal growth at which the testes regress will affect the presentation of the disorder at birth. The presentation at birth may range from varying degrees of genital ambiguity with streak gonads.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Anorchidia as a "rare disease".
