Case: A 19 year-old male patient presented with testicular dislocation after abdominopelvic trauma. During open reduction and internal fixation, consult to urology was placed after discovering the presence of the intra-abdominal testicle. The testicle was repositioned into the scrotum with orchiopexy, and pelvic fixation was completed with 1 sacroiliac percutaneous screw and pubic symphysis fixation. Postoperative recovery was uneventful, and the patient was discharged home on postoperative day 3.

Conclusion: Testicular dislocation is an uncommon finding after blunt abdominopelvic trauma; hence, it may be overlooked. Prompt diagnosis of testicular dislocation given the need for operative management to preserve testicle viability is crucial.
