Bilateral low origin of testicular artery: a case report.

J Vasc Bras 2017 Jul-Sep;16(3):258-261

Manipal University, Melaka Manipal Medical College, Department of Anatomy, Manipal, Karnataka, India.

The testicular artery is frequently subjected to radiographic imaging techniques such as angiography for diagnosis and treatment of conditions like epididymitis, testicular torsion, tumor, hematoma, and hydrocele and in cases of undescended testis. Radiologists and surgeons should therefore be aware of testicular artery variants. Although there are numerous studies and case reports that mention testicular artery variants, this is probably the first case, reporting a bilateral low origin of the testicular artery and discussing its probable embryological etiology.

Testicular torsion with preserved flow: key sonographic features and value-added approach to diagnosis.

Pediatr Radiol 2018 05 21;48(5):735-744. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Department of Radiology, Children's National Health System, Washington, DC, USA.

Testicular sonography has contributed greatly to the preoperative diagnosis of testicular torsion in the pediatric patient and is the mainstay for evaluation of acute scrotal pain. Despite its high sensitivity and specificity, both false-negative and false-positive findings occur. Presence of documented Doppler flow within the testis might be a dissuading factor for surgical exploration with resultant testicular loss in the false-negative cases. Read More

Coexistent duplication of urethra and a refluxing ectopic ureter presenting as recurrent epididymo-orchitis in a child.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Sep 19;2017. Epub 2017 Sep 19.

Christian Medical College and Hospital Vellore, Vellore, India.

Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUTs) occur in 3-6 per 1000 live births, accounting for most cases of paediatric end-stage kidney disease. However, the molecular basis of CAKUT and anomalies of the external genitalia is poorly understood. We, herein, describe a case with left recurrent epididymo-orchitis with a coexistent urethral duplication and an ectopic ureter with an ipsilateral non-functioning kidney, which is, to the best of our knowledge, the first reported case of its kind.

Section of Urology, Department of Surgery, Children's Mercy Hospital, University of Missouri-Kansas City, 2401 Gillham Road, Kansas City, MO 64108, USA.

The pediatric patient presenting with acute scrotal pain requires prompt evaluation and management given the likelihood of testicular torsion as the underlying cause. Although other diagnoses can present with acute testicular pain, it is important to recognize the possibility of testicular torsion because the best chance of testicular preservation occurs with expeditious management. When testicular torsion is suspected, prompt surgical exploration is warranted. Read More

Clinical application of neutrophil CD64 quantification for differential diagnosis of acute scrotum.

Int J Urol 2016 Mar 21;23(3):266-9. Epub 2015 Dec 21.

Department of Urology, National Hospital Organization Sagamihara National Hospital, Sagamihara, Kanagawa, Japan.

The management of acute scrotum can be challenging, especially in infants or patients with a neurological or neurodevelopmental disorder in whom presentation, diagnosis and definitive management tends to be delayed. This leads to poor outcomes, such as loss of the affected testis. Here we present two cases of testicular torsion in patients with neurodevelopmental disorders, and a further two cases of epidydimo-orchitis in whom measurement of CD64 expression on neutrophils was helpful for differential diagnosis.

Spermatocele in a South African Boerboel dog.

Top Companion Anim Med 2015 Mar 7;30(1):28-30. Epub 2015 Mar 7.

Department of Medicine and Epidemiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, Davis, CA; PetCare Veterinary Hospital East, Santa Rosa, CA.

A 2-year-old intact male South African Boerboel presented for semen cryopreservation and was discovered to be azoospermic. The dog had excellent libido and had sired litters within 6 months, so a further investigation of why his collection lacked sperm was warranted. On further examination of his scrotal contents, his right epididymis had an enlarged area with a hard texture. Read More

FDG PET/CT images demonstrating epididymo-orchitis in a patient with HIV, acute kidney injury and known epididymo-orchitis on scrotal ultrasound.

Clin Nucl Med 2015 Feb;40(2):e171-2

From the Department of Radiology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA.

A 52-year-old man with HIV was referred for an F-FDG PET/CT scan for the cause of kidney injury. FDG PET/CT scan revealed increased renal cortical FDG activity, which can be seen in HIV nephropathy or acute interstitial nephritis. Diffuse increased FDG uptake was demonstrated within the right testicle and epididymis, consistent with the patient's known right epididymo-orchitis, as diagnosed on ultrasound 1 week before admission.
