Özet

Background/Purpose: The genitofemoral nerve and its motor neuron are known to be sexually dimorphic. An association has been suggested to exist between antiandrogen-induced undescended testis and the genitofemoral nerve. Therefore, the cremaster muscles (CM) from boys and girls with inguinal hernia and boys with undescended testis were compared to evaluate the failed descent through sexual dimorphism.
