Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To report on 10 additional cases of intrascrotal calculi and briefly review the literature and pathogenesis of this benign lesion.

METHODS:

10 patients that had consulted for diverse testicular conditions were evaluated by ultrasound using the 7.5 MHz probe.

RESULTS:

All patients were found to have a hydrocele of a larger or smaller volume with a mobile hyperechoic focus that produced acoustic shadows.

CONCLUSIONS:

The ultrasound finding of intrascrotal calculi is becoming increasingly more frequent. In our view, this is due to the fact that more sonographic studies are currently performed. The possibility to diagnose this condition obviates the need for subsequent explorations or surgery.
