Abstract

Acute Idiopathic Scrotal Edema (AISE) is an uncommon cause of bilateral scrotal swelling encountered in primary care. AISE is usually seen in children; however, several case reports have shown that AISE can occur in adult males. We present an active duty adult male who presented with AISE while deployed in Afghanistan. The clinical course of AISE is usually benign with labs and ultrasound being unremarkable. Besides swelling, the most common symptom tends to be intense scrotal puritis. Treatment for AISE is watchful waiting and conservative therapy. Full symptom resolution usually occurs within 24 hours.
