Abstract

Purpose: The caliber of processus vaginalis is accepted to define the clinical outcome to be an inguinal hernia or hydrocele not based on any evaluation. The caliber of sacs and length of inguinal canals of boys and girls were evaluated to define the relation of sex, age, and the diagnosis with caliber of the sac and the length of inguinal canal.
