  1. Acute scrotal pain.

    Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America 16(4):781 (1998) PMID 9889740

    The diagnosis of acute scrotal pain can be difficult. The most common causes include torsion of a testicular appendage, epididymitis, and testicular torsion, which account for 85% to 90% of all cases. These entities may be clinically indistinguishable because characteristic symptoms and signs for ea...
  2. Ano-rectal malformation and recurring orchioepididymitis in infants.

    European Journal of Pediatric Surgery 4(1):46 (1994) PMID 8199134

    The case of a newborn boy is reported, incorrectly diagnosed as anal agenesis without urethrae fistula and treated by anoplasty. The patient later suffered several episodes of urinary infection and left epididymo-orchitis-orchioepididymitis, reflux of contrast being shown at micturating cystourethro...
  3. [A case of ectopic ureter with renal dysplasia simulating epididymal structure].

    Hinyokika kiyo. Acta urologica Japonica 38(4):451 (1992) PMID 1529818

    A 30-year-old man was admitted to our hospital suffering from fever and left scrotal swelling. Physical examination revealed an enlarged left epididymis, suggesting acute epididymitis. Intravenous pyelography showed non-functioning left kidney. On cystoscopy, the left ureter orifice did not open in...
  4. Colour Doppler imaging--a new method to differentiate torsion of the spermatic cord and epididymo-orchitis.

    European Journal of Pediatrics 149(4):253 (1990) PMID 2406148

    A newborn boy with torsion of the spermatic cord and an 8-year-old boy with epididymitis were investigated by colour Doppler imaging (CDI). Due to torsion of the spermatic cord, no blood flow could be observed within the testis and the epididymis. In epididymitis blood flow was markedly increased. C...
  5. Segmental hemorrhagic infarction of testis associated with epididymitis.

    Journal of Clinical Ultrasound 26(6):326 (1998) PMID 9641396

    We present the sonographic findings in a case of segmental testicular infarction associated with epididymitis. The gray-scale abnormalities included a round, well-defined, hypoechoic intratesticular mass and heterogeneity and enlargement of the epididymis. Color Doppler sonography demonstrated only...
  6. [The pathogenesis of infertility in epididymitis].

    Likars'ka sprava / Ministerstvo okhorony zdorov... (1):51 (1997) PMID 9221145

  7. The acute scrotum.

    American Family Physician 37(3):239 (1988) PMID 3279740

    Testicular torsion is characterized by the sudden onset of testicular pain associated with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Fever is unusual and urinalysis is often normal. Fever, pyuria, dysuria and urethral discharge are characteristic of epididymitis. Radionuclide scanning and Doppler ultraso...
  8. A possible role of Chlamydia trachomatis as a causative agent in epidydimal infertility.

    Acta Europaea fertilitatis 16(3):179 (1985) PMID 4036515

    Chlamydia Trachomatis is the most important etiological agent of idiopathic epididymitis in men of 35 years or younger, whereas coliform bacteria are more frequent in older men. The Authors report their findings in a group of eighteen patients investigated in order to establish whether, years after...
  9. [Studies on the aetiology of non-gonococcal urethritis (author's transl)].

    Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift 107(33):1227 (1982) PMID 7106003

    Tests performed on urethral secretion and morning urine specimen identified the causative micro-organism in 143 of 164 males with non-gonococcal urethritis. In 59 patients (36%) there was an infection with Chlamydia trachomatis, in 48 (29.2%) with Ureaplasma urealyticum in significantly high bacteri...
  10. Study of the seminal vesicles in acute epididymitis.

    British Journal of Urology 67(6):632 (1991) PMID 2070209

    We performed rectal ultrasound assessment of the seminal vesicles in 18 consecutive patients with epididymitis. The seminal vesicles on the same side as the epididymitis was significantly enlarged in 75% of cases; 92% of these enlarged vesicles returned to normal size in 12 weeks. A persistently enl...
