  • Salwan A, Abdelrahman A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Congenital unilateral absence of the vas deference is a very rare clinical entity in the male population it has an incidence of 0.5-1.0%. it is usually discovered during evaluation for infertility or surgical procedures of the urogenital zone. Unilateral congenital absence of the vas deference is more associated with renal agenesis (73.3%), compared to the bilateral form (11.8%). CAVD is responsible of 1-2% of male infertility.Congenital absence of the vas deference is a unique clinical entity due to its great association with a large variety of urogenital abnormalities, we present this case to stress the importance of including scrotal examination in the routine physical exam to reduce the late diagnosis of such abnormality and it associated comorbidities.
