The diagnosis and management of acute scrotal conditions in boys






British Journal of Urology 53(5): 455-459

The diagnosis and management of acute scrotal conditions in boys

In a consecutive series of 69 boys with an acute scrotal condition, 55% were suffering from torsion of a testicular appendage, 22% from torsion of the testis and the remainder from idiopathic scrotal edema or epididymitis. The general clinical features and specific scrotal findings in each of these conditions are compared and contrasted. On clinical grounds alone, torsion of the testis can be excluded in many boys presented with an acute scrotal condition. The implications for management are discussed.
