This young male patient underwent sonography of the scrotum, Sonographic images show a deep horizontal cleft passing partially through the testicles on both sides. The tissue on either side of the cleft, bilaterally, show the same echogenicity and echotexture as the normal testes. This appearance is similar to duplication of testes (polyorchism or polyorchidism). The main difference is that in duplication, the supernummerary testes is much smaller in size than the main testicle. Thus these ultrasound images are suggestive of bilateral bilobed testes.
