Abstract

The urogenital tract manifestations of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) include the entire array of voiding symptoms; infections, neurogenic bladder problems, impotence, infertility, neoplasma and AIDS associated renal syndromes. Tuberculosis occurs in approximately 4% of patients with AIDS, and involves at least one extrapulmonary site in nearly 50% of cases. However, tuberculous infection of the testicle in AIDS is rarely seen. Herein, we report a case of tuberculosis epididymoorchitis, which developed as a result of reactivation in an AIDS patient. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of AIDS presenting as tuberculous epididymoorchitis in Korea.
