20 Possible Causes for Torsion of the Appendices and Epididymis

  • Torsion of the Appendices and Epididymis

    They are localized as sessile or pedunculated appendices at the cranial pole of testis and at the head of epididymis, or at analogous organs in women.[pubfacts.com] Necrosis of appendices causes pain and local inflammation of surrounding the tunica vaginalis and epididymis (acute hemiscrotum).[emedicine.medscape.com] Incidence and structure of the appendices of the testis and epididymis.

  • Torsion of the Hydatid of Morgagni

  • Epididymitis

    This sign is virtually pathognomonic for appendiceal torsion when tenderness is also present. FIGURE 3. Testicular torsion.[aafp.org] Swelling to the degree that the epididymis is no longer palpable can indicate torsion if the symptoms have been present for only a few hours.[aafp.org] In early epididymitis, the epididymis exhibits tenderness and induration, but the testis itself is not tender.[aafp.org]

  • Spermatic Cord Hydrocele

Illustration of the common appendices of the testis and epididymis.[auanet.org] Appendiceal torsion, testis or epididymis Testicular infarction due to compressive hydrocele or hernia Testicular infarction due to other vascular insult (cord injury,thrombosis[auanet.org] The appendix testis is most commonly affected by torsion.[auanet.org]

  • Orchitis and Epididymitis

    We should see torsion of testicular appendices more as a diagnosis of exclusion.[radiologyassistant.nl] Most of the time however, we don't see it and we do the US just to exclude a testicular torsion.[radiologyassistant.nl] Testicular appendage torsion Testicular appendage torsion appears as a lesion of low echogenicity with a central hypoechogenic area adjacent to the epididymis.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Acute Epididymitis

    We should see torsion of testicular appendices more as a diagnosis of exclusion.[radiologyassistant.nl] Most of the time however, we don't see it and we do the US just to exclude a testicular torsion.[radiologyassistant.nl] Testicular appendage torsion Testicular appendage torsion appears as a lesion of low echogenicity with a central hypoechogenic area adjacent to the epididymis.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Testicular Injury

  • Testicular Torsion

    torsion present early, focal tenderness at the superior pole of the epididymis, near the torsed appendage, is often appreciated.[web.archive.org] […] visualized through the scrotal skin 28 ; overlying scrotal edema and patient complexion may limit this finding, thus decreasing the sensitivity. 29 , 33 When patients with appendiceal[aafp.org] […] visualized through the scrotal skin 28 ; overlying scrotal edema and patient complexion may limit this finding, thus decreasing the sensitivity. 29, 33 When patients with appendiceal[web.archive.org]
