Sagittal section of a newborn’s body and the tail of epididymis and their topographical relation to processus vaginalis (*), testis (T), ligamentum testis and gubernaculum. The gubernaculum is virtually inexistent (G) and the testicular ligament (TL) undergoes the process of retroperitonealization and becomes a part of the scrotal wall.
