The congenital absence of one or more testes.  

Note: Anorchism is the term preferred by some major medical lexicons (Stedman’s Medical DictionaryInternational Dictionary of Medicine); in the spoken form, it may be misunderstood as anarchism, thus confusing the inability to sire with sireless. Anorchidism appears to be the most widely used synonym, but anorchia is widely preferred in professional publications.

Synonyms Anorchidism, anorchism
