Abstract

Segmental testicular infarction is a rare cause of acute scrotum. Its etiology is not well defined and it can be clinically confused with a testicular tumor. Imaging studies play an important role in the preoperative diagnosis, with a Color doppler ultrasonography as the investigation of choice although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be useful in doubtful cases. We report a case of segmental testicular infarction treated with partial orchiectomy seen in a 58-year-old man with right scrotal pain.
