Perineal testicular ectopia is a rare congenital anomaly and it is included in the empty scrotum syndrome. The case of a patient with empty right scrotum and a palpable ipsilateral perineal mass associated with a right inguinal hernia is reported. The patient was operated on in "Centro Habana" University Children Hospital. During the surgical exploration, the right testicle and its gubernaculum testis were fixed to the right perineum. The characteristics of the testicle and its elements were normal. The testicle was fixed to the right scrotum without difficulty. The early detection of this pathology and its surgical repair on time, favored the functionality of the organ.
