Hemiscrotal Agenesis (HSA) is the rarest developmental malformation of the scrotum. It is characterized by the absence of either half of the scrotal rugae with an intact midline raphe. We report the case of a 16-month-old boy with HSA, with an island of scrotal tissue in the pubic tubercle region and ipsilateral cryptorchidism. To our knowledge, this is the first case of HSA with heterotopic development of scrotal tissue.
