Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Complete agenesis of the scrotum is an extremely rare entity: to date, only 8 cases have been reported. The authors describe 1 case carrying a heterozygous genomic variant in exon 17 of the MAP3K1 gene, whose surgical treatment included osmotic prosthesis implant to achieve reconstruction of a new scrotum. By constant and gradual expansion, self-inflating prothesis avoids patient discomfort and facilitates orchiopexy.
