CONSUMERS: Topic Resources Scrotal pain can occur in males of any age, from neonates to the elderly. Podcast Etiology The most common causes of scrotal pain include Torsion of the testicular appendage There are a number of less common causes (see Table: ). Age, onset of symptoms, and other findings can help determine the cause. Table Some Causes of Scrotal Pain Cause (...) of the testicular appendage occurs most commonly in prepubertal boys (7 to 14 yr), and is most common in adolescents and adults. Severe, sudden onset of pain suggests testicular torsion or . Pain from epididymitis, incarcerated hernia, or is of more gradual onset. Patients with torsion of the testicular appendage present with moderate pain that develops over a few days; pain is localized to the upper pole.

of duration of symptoms up to surgical exploration was 26.4 +/- 37.3 hours. All patients had standardized CDS of the scrotum. At surgery, 62 boys (20.9%) were diagnosed with TT, 168 (56.4%) with torsion of a testicular appendage (TA), and 24 (8.1%) with epididymitis. In 34 patients (11.4%), the cause of pain could not be identified during surgery. Overall CDS sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value for TT diagnosis was 96.8%, 97.9%, 92.1%, and 99.1%, respectively (...) Color Doppler Sonography Reliably Identifies Testicular Torsion in Boys. To compare the results of preoperative scrotal color Doppler ultrasonography (CDS) and final diagnosis of subsequent surgical exploration in cases of suspected testicular torsion (TT).This retrospective study included 298 boys with acute scrotum whose clinical presentation was suspicious of TT and who subsequently underwent emergency surgery regardless of CDS results.Mean patient age was 11.4 +/- 4.1 years.

Simple hydrocele Accumulation of fluid within the tunica vaginalis. Affects 1-2% of male neonates. A congenital, simple hydrocele usually disappears within the first 1-2 years of life.

appendages. No other association was detected between the pattern or degree of acute inflammatory cell infiltrate and any other clinicopathological variable that may indicate pyogenic infection. No bacteria or fungal elements were identified. Marked lymphatic dilation may be the only histological finding to indicate the presence of early torsion in cases of scrotal pain secondary to torsion of the appendix testis.Heavy acute inflammatory cell infiltrates in the torted testicular appendix can be regarded (...) Torsion of the testicular appendix: importance of associated acute inflammation. Torsion of the testicular appendix is the commonest cause of acute scrotum in children. The histological picture of these cases is variable and many show a heavy acute inflammatory cell infiltrate, unlike the response to pure ischaemic necrosis in other organs. The clinical implications and consequences of this associated inflammation are not clear.A retrospective review of all cases presenting with torsion

49. Duplex sonographic findings in children with torsion of the testicular appendages: overlap with epididymitis and epididymoorchitis. (Abstract)

Duplex sonographic findings in children with torsion of the testicular appendages: overlap with epididymitis and epididymoorchitis. Torsion of the testicular appendages (TTA) is the most common cause of acute scrotum in children, and yet there are only few dedicated studies of the imaging findings.To review our experience with the use of duplex sonography in children with TTA and to evaluate if sonography can successfully distinguish TTA from epididymoorchitis.We reviewed the medical files (...) and imaging findings of 29 children aged 0.7 to 13.9 years (mean, 6.5 years) with a diagnosis of TTA based on testicular exploration who were evaluated preoperatively with duplex sonography.A tender upper pole nodule, the typical sign of TTA, was palpated in only 2 (6.9%) children. Duplex sonography demonstrated an extratesticular upper pole nodule in 9 (31%) children. Secondary inflammatory changes included hydrocele in 22 (75.9%), enlarged epididymis in 22 (75.9%), scrotal wall edema in 16 (55.2
