Abstract : The autopsy protocols of 2600 adult, male white Angora goats, 4 to 7 years old, were reviewed for testicular pathology. They were divided into three groups: Group I contained 196 noncastrated animals with no significant pathological conditions of the testicle or cord. Group II contained 64 animals. Zero point two percent were cryptorchid bilaterally, and 2.3% were right sided cryptorchid unilaterally. Twenty-nine point seven percent of the cryptorchid goats presented with one or more tumors of the retained testes. Eighty-nine point five percent were of the benign interstitial-cell type and two 10.5% were fibromas. Group III consisted of the remaining 2340 goats that were fully castrated. Two fibromas and one leiomyoma of the remaining cord were observed. (Author)
