Epididymitis. Clin Infect Dis 2015; 61 Suppl 8: S770-3.
In total, eight oligoastenospermic patients, whose average age was 33.9 and for whom the cause of their infertility could not be identified, were recruited: molecular-genetic investigations were normal and cryptorchidism, epididymitis, varicocele, and so on were eliminated after clinical and instrumental examination.
An ultrasound demonstrated right-sided epididymitis with possible necrosis, increasing complexity of the associated hydrocele, and new concerns for a focal scrotal abscess.
(7) To date, however, no tool or examination can reliably distinguish emergency situations such as testicular torsion from less acute causes of scrotal pain such as epididymitis, spermatocele, hydrocele, or distal ureterolithiasis.
Postoperative complications (n(*)=number of sides) Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 (n (*) =30) (n (*) =52) (n (*) =40) Scrotal edema 1 (3.3%) 2 (3.8%) 2 (5%) Wound infection 1 (3.3%) 0 (0%) 0 (0%) Hematoma 1 (3.3%) 0 (0%) 0 (0%) Chronic pain 0 (0%) 2 (3.8%) 0 (0%) Epididymitis 0 (0%) 1 (1.9%) 0 (0%) Early recurrence 0 (0%) 1 (1.9%) 1 (2.5%) Switching to open surgery - 0 (0%) 0 (0%)
Also other post-operative complications are epididymitis, testicular swelling and infarction, renal artery stenosis, etc.
The differential diagnoses of scrotal swelling and/or scrotal pain in a pediatric patient includes epididymo-orchitis, epididymitis, torsion of the appendix epididymis, torsion of the appendix testis, testicular tumor, scrotal soft tissue trauma, spermatic cord hematoma, scrotal cellulitis, inguinal hernia, hydrocele, varicocele, ureteral distention, lower back pain, peritonitis, and hematologic disorders, such as leukemia or lymphoma (Gordhan & Sadeghi-Nejad, 2015; Kadish & Bolte, 1998; Pepe et al., 2015; Sharp et al., 2013).
Minor complications were noted in 12 patients (6.9%): transient thigh paresthesia (4%), superficial wound infections (2.83%), urinary tract infections (1.14%), mucus plug/atelectasis (0.6%), ileus (0.6%) and epididymitis (0.6%).
Acute epididymitis is characterized by acute testicular pain and most commonly involves the symptom of acute scrotum as well.
The most common urogenital manifestations are prostatitis (the urological manifestation with the highest number of reported cases, approximately 40), penile necrosis (20 cases reported) [7], orchitis (12.5-36% GPA patients with urogenital disease), ureter involvement (20 reports), renal masses (18 cases), urethritis (8 cases), and epididymitis (4 patients) [3].
Differential diagnoses can be made with irreducible inguinal hernia, inguinal lymphadenitis, acute scrotum, and epididymitis. Surgeon faced by AH has to treat two of the most common surgical diseases: hernia and appendicitis.
Sheep brucellosis can be divided into classical brucellosis and ram epididymitis. Ram epididymitis is caused by non-zoonotic agent B.
(4) The commonly reported symptoms are perineal or pelvic pain, urinary tract infection, prostatitis, epididymitis, hematuria, hemospermia and infertility.
Although the majority of cases with STI are idiopathic, conditions like vasculitis, sickle cell disease, polycythemia, epididymitis, intimal fibroplasia of spermatic artery, hypersensitivity angiitis, trauma, or prior testicular torsion can predispose to this condition.
18 Over 90 % of testicular swellings are caused by other conditions such as a hyrdocele or epididymitis. 19 As testicular cancer is around 95 % curable early diagnosis and regular checking is important.
