Abstract

Aim: It has been hypothesized that the cremaster muscle (CM) might play a part in the pathogenesis of various inguinoscrotal pathologies such as undescended testis and hernia. A prospective study was carried out to determine if CM of boys with hydrocele, inguinal hernia, and undescended testis reveal any histopathological and immunohistopathological alterations.
