Tunica vaginalis hydrocele (TVH) is a relatively common entity. The procedure of testicular reposition in a subcutaneous pouch following severe scrotal avulsion injury is also a standard line of care. Though, the occurrence of TVH in such a reposited testis is extremely rare clinical presentation. We herein report a case of 55-year male patient who presented with swelling over medial aspect of left upper thigh which was diagnosed as TVH of reposited testis on detailed assessment. The patient was managed on the usual lines of management protocols of TVH with successful outcome.
