Epididymal fusional anomalies have been found to be associated with conditions of testicular maldescent with the several studies investigating this association reporting several variations in epididymal anatomy and epididymal-testicular fusion. To our knowledge, a single case of an isolated lower epididymal pole with a normal vas deferens, dubbed "Epididymal Polar Dissociation", has been reported in the literature. In this report, we report the second case of epididymal polar dissociation discovered in a 17-year-old during surgical management of left testicular torsion.
