Idiopathic scrotal edema.


An eight-year experience consisting of 30 cases of idiopathic scrotal edema has been analyzed. The condition is characterized by a minimally painful scrotal swelling produced by subcutaneous edema. A normal testis and cord enable one to differentiate it from some other causes of scrotal swelling such as torsion of the testis and epididymo-orchitis. A connection with trauma, periurethral disease, or streptococcal disease appears unlikely. A localized allergic phenomenon, perhaps a local form of angioneurotic edema appears to be the most likely etiologic factor.
