Abstract

Background/Purpose: Retractile testis traditionally has been regarded as suprascrotal location of testis resulting from hyperactivity of the cremasteric reflex (CR). However, the activity of CR is evaluated poorly in the literature. Electrophysiological characteristics of CR in boys with various testicular localizations have been evaluated comparatively.
