Abstract

20 children (mean age 4, 6 yrs), of whom 13 had unilateral and 7 had bilateral cryptorchidism were treated with hMG: 40 I.U. three i.m. injections per week for six or eight weeks. Where there was no descent of testis, treatment was continued with hMG at the same dosage plus hCG 500 I.U. one i.m. injection per week for an additional four weeks. The children were tested for FSH, LH and Testosterone serum levels at the beginning of treatment and after 6, 8 and 14 weeks. We obtained testicular descent in 10 out of 20 cases treated. Ultrasonography enabled us to locate the undescended testes in all cases and to follow the response to treatment.
