Seminal Vesicle Urinary Reflux After TURP Mimicking Vesicular Invasion From Prostate Cancer on 18F-Choline PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2021 Jan;46(1):e47-e48

Nuclear Medicine Department, Pio XI Private Hospital, Rome, Italy.

Seminal vesicles are paired secretory glands located posterior to the bladder in men that produce seminal fluid to maintain sperm. Seminal vesicle reflux into the prostatic ducts may be associated with prostatitis in older patients or may represent a very rare complication of transurethral prostate resection in patients with prostatic cancer. This condition is frequently accidentally diagnosed on excretory urography and/or retrograde urethrogram. Read More

The role of multiparametric ultrasound in the diagnosis of paediatric scrotal pathology.

Br J Radiol 2020 Jun 23;93(1110):20200063. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Department of Radiology, King's College Hospital, London. Denmark Hill, London SE5 9RS U.K, United Kingdom.

Multiparametric ultrasound (MPUS), combining conventional techniques (greyscale and colour Doppler ultrasound), ultrasound strain elastography, and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), has been successfully used in the assessment of adult scrotal pathology. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound can confidently establish testicular tissue vascularity even in the small-volume paediatric testis. Elastography provides further assessment of tissue stiffness, potentially adding useful diagnostic information. Read More

Klinik für Kinderurologie in Kooperation mit der Universität Regensburg, KUNO-Klinik St. Hedwig, Steinmetzstraße 1-3, 93049, Regensburg, Deutschland.

Considering that Quist et al. first described the acute idiopathic scrotal edema (AISE) already in 1956, there are not many studies published in literature concerning the etiology, the development, and the progress of the disease since then. According to the literature the incidence of AISE is about 20%. Read More

Overview of ultrasound applications for assessing scrotal disorders.

J Ultrasound Med 2020 Jun 16;39(6):1047-1056. Epub 2019 Dec 16.

Department of Radiology, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Grosshadern Campus, Munich, Germany.

The scrotum may be affected by a plethora of different disorders such as infections, vasculopathies, trauma, and manifestations of primary and secondary malignant masses. In addition to the patient's medical history and clinical examination, ultrasound represents the imaging modality of choice to assess scrotal disorders. Time-consuming contrast-enhanced ultrasound and elastography can provide further information to distinguish between benign and malignant testicular mass lesions. Read More

Imaging of the acute scrotum: keys to a rapid diagnosis of acute scrotal disorders.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 07;45(7):2063-2081

Section of Abdominal Imaging, Imaging Institute, Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH, 44195, USA.

Imaging of the scrotum in the setting of acute symptoms such as pain or swelling is commonly performed emergently to differentiate between patients who require immediate surgery and those that do not. Acute scrotal symptoms are generally caused by infectious, traumatic or vascular etiologies. Rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment is vital for testicular salvage in cases of acute testicular torsion, testicular rupture, and Fournier gangrene. Read More

Fine needle aspiration cytology of epididymal nodules and its corroboration with ultrasonographic-histological findings.

Diagn Cytopathol 2020 Feb 7;48(2):118-127. Epub 2019 Nov 7.

Department of Pathology, Sonoscan Healthcare, Malda, West Bengal, India.

Background: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) assisted with scrotal ultrasonography is the best preoperative diagnostic modality for palpable epididymal nodules. It also aids in their successive remedial approach as well as serves semi-therapeutically in cystic lesions. The objectives of this study are to recognize the spectrum of pathological conditions giving rise to epididymal nodules, then to compare them with corresponding ultrasound images, and to evaluate the histological features wherever practicable.

More Than Just Torsion: An Unusual Case of Testicular Pain.

Mil Med 2020 06;185(5-6):e900-e903

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, 620 John Paul Jones Circle, Portsmouth, VA 23708.

Testicular pain has a wide differential and the nonspecific presentation should be triaged rapidly for urgent diagnosis and treatment. Scrotal pyoceles are uncommon collections of purulent fluid between the visceral and parietal tunica vaginalis, usually secondary to acute epididymo-orchitis, intra-abdominal infection, or trauma. Epididymitis and epididymo-orchitis are generally secondary to sexually transmitted infections or urinary tract pathogens. Read More

Pain Research Center Imam Khomeini Hospital Ahvaz Jundishapur University Of Medical Science, Ahvaz, Iran.

We reported a case of 2-year-old child where epididymo-orchitis was misdiagnosed as testicular torsion on scrotal scintigraphy. The scan showed that left hemiscrotum demonstrated a rim of increased activity with a photopenic center in the left testis (halo sign). At surgery, epididymo-orchitis was detected and there was no testicular torsion. Read More
