Abstract

Testicular tumors rarely manifest themselves with clinical picture of testicular torsion. In this presentation of ours, we reported a 30-year-old patient whose post-orchiectomy histopathology report revealed the presence of seminoma. The patient consulted us with acute scrotum whose physical examination and Doppler ultrasonographic findings showed testicular torsion. Though rarely seen patients, in cases who consulted with acute scrotum, the possibility of testicular tumor should not be discarded. For the establishment of differential diagnosis detailed anamnesis and physical examination findings should be supported with laboratory tests and imaging modalities.
