Abstract

Spontaneous thrombosis of a varicocele is a rare event and difficult to diagnose, as the clinical symptoms during the acute phase can simulate torsion of the spermatic cord or strangulated inguinal hernia leading to a useless surgical exploration. The authors report a case of spontaneous thrombosis of a varicocele which was diagnosed clinically, allowing conservative medical treatment.
