In other species: dog , horse , taurine cattle , sheep

Categories: Growth / size / body region phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: An inguinal hernia that has passed into the scrotum.

Inheritance: Often shows familial occurrence, but convincing evidence for single-locus inheritance is lacking.
