ABSTRACT: Diagnostic laparoscopy by closed method (Veress needle) was performed in 20 patients aged 6 months to 12 years (average 4 year 7 months) who had 23 impalpable tests (3 patients with bilateral impalpable testes). Patients in whom blind ending vas and vessels were noted or in whom vas, vessel or testis could not be located, operation was avoided (3 patient), In the other patient open exploration was done. there was no complication related to the laparoscopic procedure. The information gained from laparoscopy not only helped in localizing the testis but also in formulating further management.
