Funiculitis


Presentation

  • Clinically, our patients presented with spermatic cord enlargement (case 1) and chronic orchitis that did not respond to treatment with antibiotics (case 2).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We propose that the term "proliferative funiculitis" be used to describe this type of reactive process when it presents in the spermatic cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present case is the first example of proliferative funiculitis associated with this rare phenomenon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report a case of a 13-year-old adolescent boy who presented a painless left hemiscrotal swelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Still i am feelig tenderness is present and not reduced 100%. Pl advice[medhelp.org]
Pseudotumor
  • Lesions that belong to the group of inflammatory pseudotumors are rarely accompanied by a prominent mast cell infiltration, and the differentiation from mast cell neoplasms is often problematic in such cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Terminology Also known as pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation of spermatic cord Some studies mention relationship to: inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, inflammatory pseudotumor, atypical myofibroblastic tumor, pseudosarcoma ( Urology 2009[pathologyoutlines.com]
Inguinal Lesions
  • Symptoms: Signs and Symptoms may include: Inguinal lesions. Acute scrotum syndrome. Scrotal edema/swelling. Scrotal pain. Spermatic Cord Mass. Swelling of scrotum. Swelling/epididymis. Tender spermatic cord/vas.[medigoo.com]
Inguinal Mass
  • Inguinal Mass/Swelling. Other Symptoms May Include: Chills or shaking. Excessive sweating. Headache. High fever (higher than 101 degrees Fahrenheit). Muscle aches and pains. Nausea with or without vomiting.[medigoo.com]
Falling
  • CASE REPORT: A 21-year male sustained complete tetraplegia at C-6 level, after a fall in 1998. The neuropathic bladder was managed with an indwelling urethral catheter. He had many unsuccessful trials of micturition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Inguinal Lesions
  • Symptoms: Signs and Symptoms may include: Inguinal lesions. Acute scrotum syndrome. Scrotal edema/swelling. Scrotal pain. Spermatic Cord Mass. Swelling of scrotum. Swelling/epididymis. Tender spermatic cord/vas.[medigoo.com]
Burning Sensation
  • After exposure, I had a burning sensation during urinating and pain in the scrotum. I got a urine culture test the next day result (no pathogens present) but doctor presc... Read Full » Dr.[icliniq.com]

Treatment

  • Clinically, our patients presented with spermatic cord enlargement (case 1) and chronic orchitis that did not respond to treatment with antibiotics (case 2).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Since tissue destruction is a feature of xanthogranulomatous inflammation, the definite and curative treatment is either complete (or, where applicable, partial) excision of the affected organ in most of the cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Today is 9Th day of treatment and pain has been reduced to 70-80% and Swellen of Spermatic cord also reduced to 50%. Still i am feelig tenderness is present and not reduced 100%. Pl advice[medhelp.org]

Prognosis

  • […] proliferative funiculitis Epidemiology Older men (ages 52 - 76 years) Etiology May be due to ischemia, torsion or extension of vasitis Laboratory Normal levels of α-fetoprotein, β-human chorionic gonadotropin Prognostic factors Can recur locally; excellent prognosis[pathologyoutlines.com]
  • If treated appropriately with antibiotics, epididymitis should be cured and the individual will have an excellent prognosis (outlook). The pain should improve within 1-3 days; however, swelling may take several days to resolve.[emedicinehealth.com]

Etiology

  • […] inflammatory pseudotumor, atypical myofibroblastic tumor, pseudosarcoma ( Urology 2009;73:1423 ) These terms are often used inappropriately in literature and may not truly be related to proliferative funiculitis Epidemiology Older men (ages 52 - 76 years) Etiology[pathologyoutlines.com]
  • In the literature review covers the etiology, pathogenesis, classification, clinical picture and diagnosis of each of these forms of deferentitis and funiculitis.[ecuro.ru]
  • Etiology Bacterial epididymitis Most epididymitis (and epididymo-orchitis) is caused by bacteria. When inflammation involves the vas deferens, vasitis ensues. When all spermatic cord structures also are involved, the diagnosis is funiculitis.[msdmanuals.com]
  • Ultrasound Sonography can be a useful modality to confirm the presence of a scrotal or inguinal hernia or differentiate other etiologies that may simulate hernia.[radiologykey.com]

Epidemiology

Pathophysiology

  • After briefly presenting an overview of the demography of subfecundity, this book goes on exploring the pathophysiology and effect on fecundity of various diseases, which are classified into three groups.[books.google.com]

Prevention

  • Other prevention methods are as follows: abstinence (no sexual relations); condom use (reduces chances for infection by about 90%); monogamy with only one uninfected sex partner; preventing child abuse in pediatric patients; and mumps vaccination.[emedicinehealth.com]
  • Recurrent bacterial epididymitis secondary to incurable chronic urethritis or prostatitis occasionally can be prevented by vasectomy. An epididymectomy, occasionally done for chronic epididymitis, may not relieve symptoms.[msdmanuals.com]
  • Dental abnormalities are secondary lesions that affect early development of dental buds and can be prevented by treatment with penicillin in the neonatal period or early childhood.[medicaldb.blogspot.com]
