ABSTRACT
Spontaneous extrusion of the testis from the scrotum is a very rare cause of acute scrotum in neonates. It has been described as scrotoschisis in few case reports. The exact etiology of this condition is not known. Replacing the testes and repair of scrotum is needed and associated with good prognosis. We report two cases that presented in a short interval to us with a review of the literature.

Figure 1: Case 1

Mentions: A 15-day-old male baby was brought from an orphanage with his right testes extruding from the scrotum. The birth details were not available. There was no history of trauma. Care givers at the orphanage noticed sudden extrusion of the right testes from the scrotal defect without any redness or swelling prior to this event. The baby had a transverse wound at the base of the scrotum with his testis prolapsing through it [Figure 1]. There was no bleeding and the testis appeared edematous and firm in consistency, suggestive of orchitis. The left testis was normal in position and size. No other genitourinary abnormalities were seen.
