Abstract

Abdominoscrotal hydrocele is a rare entity with unclear etiology which may be diagnosed with general examination and ultrasound imaging. During examination it may misinterpreted as acute urinary retention of the bladder (globe-like) especially if associated with hydronephrosis. It should be treated surgically. Here we present a case of left abdominoscrotal hydrocele with accompanying left grade 2 and right grade 1 hydronephrosis.
