Segmental testicular infarction: Case series and brief literature review of a great mime

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Segmental testicular infarction is rare, and the etiology is mostly idiopathic. We report a case series of four young patients, one of them with metachronous bilateral disease, presenting with an acute scrotum and treated with a testis-sparing approach, if feasible, after a negative intraoperative biopsy. Etiology, differential diagnosis, and management are reviewed. To be aware of clinical and imaging features of this benign testicular pathology, it is crucial to avoid unnecessary orchiectomies to preserve vital testicular tissue left.
