URINARY STEROID EXCRETION IN CRYPTORCHIDISM IN THE PIG

in Reproduction

Summary.

Urinary excretion of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHA) and oestrogens was determined in five bilaterally cryptorchid boars and four unilaterally cryptorchid boars. Similar determinations were carried out in two boars made cryptorchid through surgery. The DHA and oestrogen values for the cryptorchid animals were comparable to normal boars of a similar age. These results suggest that the cryptorchid testes of the boar are capable of producing normal amounts of testicular steroid hormones.
