137 Possible Causes for Testicular Infarction

  • Testicular Torsion

    Testicular torsion occurring after previous orchidopexy is rare, but recognition of this possibility is essential to prevent testicular infarction and subsequent orchidectomy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We reviewed 386 testes and their epididymides and spermatic cords which had been removed for testicular infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here we present a review of testicular torsion and infarction, including theories about their pathogenesis and the appropriate handling by the diagnostic pathologist.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mumps Orchitis

    Orchitis can also lead to infertility, scrotal abscess or fistula, or problems with blood flow to the testicles (testicular infarction).[menshealth.about.com] Other potential complications include: Chronic epididymitis Death of testicle tissue (testicular infarction) Fistula on the skin of the scrotum (cutaneous scrotal fistula)[medlineplus.gov] One-third of boys who get orchitis from the mumps virus go on to have shrinkage of one or both of the testicles (testicular atrophy).[menshealth.about.com]

  • Testicular Abscess

    Intratesticular haematoma Segmental testicular infarction[eurorad.org] infarct Syphilis Testis usually involved first Discrete gummas contribute to enlarged, irregular testis Gummas: diffuse interstitial inflammation with edema, lymphocytes[pathologyoutlines.com] Differential diagnoses include tumor, abscess, infarction, testicular cancer, TB, and fungal epididymitis.[cdc.gov]

  • Testicular Injury

    infarction due to compressive hydrocele or hernia Testicular infarction due to other vascular insult (cord injury,thrombosis) Trauma: Testicular rupture Intratesticular hematoma[auanet.org] Testicular rupture and testicular ischaemia/infarct are two severe complications which need to be ruled out.[radiopaedia.org] The complete absence of pain in a patient with scrotal swelling and hematoma raises the possibility of testicular infarction or spermatic cord torsion.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Orchitis

    Early diagnosis and management are essential, as serious complications can include abscess formation, testicular infarction and infertility.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are other complications reported in such patients, such as chronic epididymitis, testicular infarction, or scrotal abscess.[symptoma.com] Other potential complications include: Chronic epididymitis, death of testicle tissue (testicular infarction) and scrotal abscess .[neilbaum.wordpress.com]

  • Spermatic Cord Injury

    Key words: testicular infarction; epididymitis; spinal cord injury; neurogenic bladder.[medicaljournals.se] Testicular Infarction Post Inguinal Hernia Repair: Would a laparoscopic approach have helped reduce the risk?[casereports.in] […] hemorrhage Testicular infarction Testicular thrombosis Thrombosis of scrotum Thrombosis of spermatic cord Thrombosis of testis Vascular disorder of scrotum Applies To Hematoma[icd9data.com]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    Peripheral gangrene and testicular infarctions are seldom noticed. Neonatal polycythemia often occurs in children with ABO or Rh incompatibility.[symptoma.com]

  • Testicular Atrophy

    The group of infants less than 1 month of age with symptoms for more than 24 hours and with ileus is the highest risk group for testicular infarction at the time of incarceration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 1.1 cm), calcification, hemosiderin Patient has only rudimentary epididymis and spermatic cord with vas deferens Possibly due to testicular infarct ( Histopathology 1991;[pathologyoutlines.com] Terminology Testicular regression syndrome : Affects 5% with cryptorchidism ( Arch Pathol Lab Med 2000;124:694 ) Testicular tissue is replaced by fibrovascular nodule (mean[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Cholesterol Embolism

    This is the first report to describe cholesterol embolism-associated segmental testicular infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] infarction due to cholesterol embolism: not the first case, but the first report. ( 18844943 ) Adachi S....Yamaguchi S. 2008 18 Cholesterol embolism evaluated by polarized[malacards.org] Reported herein is a very rare case of segmental testicular infarction due to atheroembolism in a 58-year-old man.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Epididymitis

    Herein, we reported a case of testicular infarction in a patient with Klebsiella oxytoca induced acute epididymitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A case of acute epididymitis evolved into testicular infarction. Scrotal scintigraphy identified the initial epididymitis and subsequent evolution into infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Orchiectomy due to secondary testicular infarction was necessary in four cases, while in all other patients ultrasound parameters normalized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
