Polyorchidism is a rare anomaly and it is defined as presence of two or more testes. It can be associated with large number of complications. A case report of polyorchidism in a 23 year old man with two normally descended left testes and its MRI images is described here. MRI scan is more sensitive in diagnosing the associated complications than ultrasound scan. In the absence of associated complications, conservative management should be preferred.
