Synopsis: 
We report our laparoscopy results in non-palpable testes cases and emphasize the utility of laparoscopy in unilateral, non-palpable testes cases in contrast to a previously published paper. We also discussed different aspects of the laparoscopic approach for non-palpable testis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Laparoscopy has been accepted as the best diagnostic tool and suggested as the treatment of choice for non-palpable testes cases. However, its use in unilateral non-palpable testis cases has been previously debated.

Methods: The clinical records of the non-palpable testis cases that were managed with laparoscopy between January 2011 and December 2013 were retrospectively reviewed.
