Cryptorchidism is associated with a higher risk for development of testicular germ cell tumor. Such cancerous undescended testis is vulnerable for complications like torsion.A 21 year old male presented with acute abdomen, on exploration he was found to have bilateral intra-abdominal testes, the right testis was gangrenous and right orchiectomy was done immediately. The left one was enlarged to a lesser extent and biopsy done. The histopathology confirmed the presence of seminoma in both testes. Left radical orchiectomy done later followed by radiotherapy. The patient was followed for 2 years. We report this quite rare case and review the related articles.
