ABSTRACT: A 1 and half year old boy presented with a lower abdominal lump along with right sided undescended testis. Serum alpha fetoprotein level was grossly raised. FNAC from the lump showed pleomorphic malignant cells in clusters. The mass was completely excised and was reported to be yolk sac tumor by histopathological examination. Testicular malignancy, a dreaded complication of cryptorchidism, may even occur in early childhood, and as such should be thought of as a possibility when a cryptorchid child presents with an abdominal lump.
