A case of ectopic scrotum located in the right inguinal area and associated with covered exstrophy and ipsilateral renal agenesis is described. Initially, repair of the exstrophy was performed. Scrotal reconstruction was carried out after 1 year, during which time the patient developed an inguinal hernia in the ectopic scrotum. The literature is reviewed and the scrotal reconstruction procedure is discussed.
