This is no doubt relevant, whereas other topics such as Clockwork Girl21 pointed out were not. It depends even if it is intimate, if it is relevant. If it's not relevant we shoudn't discuss it, if it is, then we can.

What I'm missing here, is respect for other persons, they're not just facts of history, this is a Public Discussion Board, in my country, we speak about this things among friends, near colleges or otherwise, but not in public, who doesn't respect other persons, alive or not, doesn't have self-respect either.

I don't know anything about this, needless to say, in medical terms. I think we should apply it in general terms-what it did it mean for Russia that Alexei had this, and not about him so much personally.

Dear Tukker-ragazzo,

This discussion board is read by people all over world, so you can't just say what is done in your country and we have to follow it ??(i understand really, is this want your trying to say? :-/ sorry if your not) what am trying to say is, if you don't like reading this dicussion, don't read it, it easy as that.

the saint Alexei has been died for years, if he known what were discussing about; I think he'll be embarassed and think that were just trying to know the way of his life, of what suffers from, the things he like to do (example: play with toy guns), his favorite foods etc...

You guys are acting as if ALeksei KNEW about this condition! I personally don't think he even realised he had somethign wrong.....in that area, at least....
He was too young to be worrying about it anyways, when he was murdered, and before that.

I think he was way too young to care, or to be aware of this, as far as I know. I agree with that. But I suppose he might be embarassed with this discussion, despite that. The fact he had this condition wasn't a factor in his life at the time of his death, anyway.

I shall address the medical issues of cryptochidism as I know them through the experiences of an old friend who has this malady in it worst form.

If the undescended testicle does not drop into place during the teen years, it stands a much greater chance of causing additional problems such as hernias and in the worse case, becoming necrotic which requires removal. The healthy testicle can also experience problems because the undescended one is not in it proper place, leading to tension and or torsion on the healthy testicle, causing it to twist out of place or to simply be very sore. In the worse case, the healthy testicle can be torn from its teathers inside the scrotom (very painful). If this issue does not heal itself early, scar tissue can form causing permanent nerve damage in the groin/perineum and leave the afflicted unable to sit for long periods of time. If this disorder were to have stricken Aleksei in its worst forms, he probably would have found himself taking opiates on a daily basis for relief.

I learned, here in the Netherlands, that this kind of problems have to be cured before the boys 3rd birthday, when possible! To minimize the boys problems in his further life, that's also why the kids are under regular medical control.

To make Alexei's situation even worse, if corrective surgery was indeed available back then, there would of course have been the risk of his bleeding to death from the operation.  Darned if he did, and darned if he didn't--- poor boy.

My own cousin suffers from an unilateral chryptorchidism, and I don't think it is that rare. He accepts his probelm and doctors said to him that he 'll don't have any sexual troubles for it. I do not know if a complete chryptorchidism is worse than that. But I think that even back then, this problem should have a cure.

Of course, it's better than hemophilia... :'(

It is a common problem. If the testicle hasn't dropped by about 1 year to 18 months than intervention is required. If the testicle cannot be surgically placed where it should be then it is removed (usually before school age in the UK). If left it can become malignant. A "falsie" can be placed in the scrotum for cosmetic purposes and there is no reason why the child should be sterile. Hope this helps

Huh, I wonder whether the guy suffering from the delusion that he was Alexei knew that Alexei had this condition.  It's like men of a certain age with a bad family background and a foot deformity thinking they're the Lindbergh baby.  I wonder if one of them had it in the right and the other in the left?  (The foot and the other problem.)   :-/

Can this condition cause fertility issues at all, and if so what? That's what interests me most; would have made it at all hard for Alexei to have had heirs? From the discussion so far, it leaves me not very sure.

It is true, and has been discussed in another thread already. Alexei suffered from this condition.

Has it ever been cured?

I don't know. I've read in another thread that he had undergone surgery and that he had bleed very little. However, is the first time I've read it, and no source is quoted, so I tend to believe he didn't undergo surgery. Of course, he could have survived to it if doctors would take all the cares they could (sometimes, hemophiliacs needs to have surgery in order to save their life, but if it is not strictly necessary, it's better not to submit them to such a proof, specially if they are serious hemophiliacs), but I doubt he was treated in such a way if he didn't REALLY needs it.

I don't have any source who claims that he had surgery to cure his chryptorchidism, and if the person who said he did doesn't quote any source I wouldn't think so.
