Laparoscopic orchiopexy is the well-accepted procedure for non-palpable testis. Herein we present a case of a 20-yr-old male who was operated for laparoscopic orchiopexy for bilateral undescended testis. Intraoperatively he sustained an injury to the urinary bladder which remained unrecognized till he presented with gross ascites, decrease in urine output and high serum creatinine. In this case, we aim to highlight this rarely reported complication of laparoscopic orchiopexy, its prevention, and management.
