The prune belly syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by laxed, wrinkled abdominal wall, cryptorchidism and urinary tract anomalies. But it has wide spectrum of clinical severity, clinical presentation and other anomalies such as pulmonary and skeletal anomalies. We suggested that we should examine the abdominal wall carefully in order to detect mild form (class III) of prune belly syndrome when we examine the bilateral cryptorchidism. In addition to case report, we present a brief review of the related literatures.
